Almost 50% of construction accidents are linked to decisions made during the design phase. Recognizing this, how can solar designers proactively address workers’ safety concerns? Through several solar project case studies and interviews, UW & OSU researchers have developed a Prevention through Design Protocol. Intended for solar energy systems designers, this Protocol supports those interested in applying Prevention through Design (PtD) practices to improve solar safety for small residential buildings.
Please join us on May 12, 2017 for a 3-hour seminar to learn about Prevention through Design and discuss this Protocol. We also look forward to gathering your feedback to support continued improvement of this Protocol as we prepare to publish it for the industry. Everyone is welcome. Snacks and drinks will be provided. For more information and to RSVP, please contact Chung Ho (firstname.lastname@example.org). See cm.be.uw.edu/cerc for directions.
