Lessons to Go Home Safe, a three-part safety series produced by MetaMedia Training International, Inc. (MetaMedia) working with CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training, have been honored with the prestigious Robert F. Boger Award from the Construction Writers Association. Through a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Lessons to Go Home Safe focuses on construction worker safety designed to help prevent serious injuries and fatalities that occur on job sites across the country all too often.
Lessons to Go Home Safe, which also won a Silver Telly Award in two categories and the “best short video” award from the International Labor Communicators Association earlier this year, is comprised of three short videos portraying events of actual fatal construction accidents along with methods to prevent these unnecessary tragedies. The 2-4 minute videos, all based on NIOSH Fatality Reports, are available on CPWR’s YouTube Channel in Spanish and English.
“Receiving the Boger Award is a tremendous honor,” said Mary Watters, Communications Director of CPWR. “CWA members represent large construction industry organizations and companies. Being recognized with this esteemed award reinforces our commitment and dedication to safety and training products that make an impact on users and reinforce the reasons that safe work practices make a big difference. And because our work is developed with grants, it’s available to all at no charge.”
