The Rise & Fall of the Green Building Movement - 1 AIA Credit

Peter Pfeiffer, FAIA
CEO & Founder | Barley|Pfeiffer Architecture
Why is today’s technology-based “LEED” Green Building program a far cry from the original, and arguably deeper, ideals and aspirations of the “Green” movement? What’s more real? What’s next? Now the green building movement has been codified into a checklist approach to integrating various “green” building products and technologies into our homes and buildings. New “catchy” terms are being bantered about – like “IAQ” and “Net Zero” homes and buildings. What does this mean? What does it “boil down” to? Isn't what we're trying to achieve is to make our buildings, homes, and communities simply perform better? What about a different approach – that of “Green” or “High Performance” building – BY DESIGN?

Fatal 4 Leading Causes in Construction
11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Image Image
Bradford K. Holman
CEO | Occupational Safety Solutions
Beginning in 1971, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has partnered with employers, health and safety professionals, and other safety advocates as a means of establishing safe and healthful workplaces throughout the industry.
Fortunately, over the years, injuries and fatalities in the workplace have decreased substantially.
OSHA reports that there is an average of 12 work-related fatalities throughout the United States every day.
As an example, the leading causes of workplace deaths in the construction industry, which is commonly called the “Fatal Four” by OSHA, include:
  • Falls: Approximately 36.5% of all deaths in the workplace occurred due to employees falling.
    These include workers who have fallen due to unprotected sides or holes, improperly constructed walking or working surfaces, workers who have fallen off ladders, roofs, scaffolding, large skyscraper construction areas, etc., all due to failure to use proper fall protection. Incorporating the OSHA fall protection requirements would resolve these issues, which includes 1910.269(g)(2) Fall Protection.
  • Struck by an Object: An estimated 10.1% of deaths occurred due to swinging, falling, or misplaced objects. These also include falling objects due to rigging failure, loose or shifting materials, equipment malfunctions, and vehicle or equipment strikes.
  • Electrocutions: About 8.6% of employees died due to electrocution. These are caused by contact with overhead power lines or energized conductors or circuit parts in electrical panels and equipment panels, poorly maintained extension cords and power tools, as well as lightning strikes. Strict adherence to OSHA 1910.331-.335, 1910.269, and NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace would prevent these accidents.
  • Caught-in or Caught-between: Employees caught in or between machines, devices, or tools causing death accounted for about 2.5% of deaths. These also include trench or excavation collapses, as well as workers caught.

Fatales 4 Causas Principales en la Construcción
11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Lucy Castro-Dowell
Senior Safety Consultant | Occupational Safety Solutions
A partir de 1971, la Administración de Salud y Seguridad Ocupacional (OSHA) se ha asociado con empleadores, profesionales de la salud y la seguridad y otros defensores de la seguridad como un medio para establecer lugares de trabajo seguros y saludables en toda la industria.
Afortunadamente, a lo largo de los años, las lesiones y muertes en el lugar de trabajo han disminuido sustancialmente. Desafortunadamente, hay muchas lesiones y muertes en el lugar de trabajo que continúan ocurriendo todos los días.OSHA informa que cada día hay un promedio de 12 muertes relacionadas con el trabajo en los Estados Unidos. Como ejemplo, las principales causas de muerte en el lugar de trabajo en la industria de la construcción, que OSHA comúnmente llama los "Cuatro Fatales", incluyen:
  • Aproximadamente el 36.5% de todas las muertes en el lugar de trabajo ocurrieron debido a la caída de empleados. Estos incluyen trabajadores que se han caído debido a agujeros o lados desprotegidos, superficies para caminar o de trabajo construidas incorrectamente, trabajadores que se han caído de escaleras, techos, andamios, áreas de construcción de rascacielos grandes,etc.,todo debido a no usar la protección contra caídas adecuada. La incorporación de los requisitos de protección contra caídas de OSHA resolvería estos problemas, que incluye la 1910.269(g)(2) Protección Contra Caídas.
  • Golpeado por un Objeto: Se estima que el 10.1% de las muertes ocurrieron debido a objetos que se balancearon, que cayeron o objetos mal colocados Estos también incluyen objetos que caen debido a fallas en el aparejo, materiales sueltos o movimiento, mal funcionamiento del equipo y golpes de vehículo o equipo.
  • Electrocuciones: Aproximadamente el 8.6% de los empleados murieron por electrocución. Los trabajadores enfrentan una serie de riesgos de electrocución en los sitios de construcción, como alambrado expuesto, condiciones mojadas, mientras los enchufes están expuestos,etc. Estos son causados por el contacto con líneas eléctricas aéreas o conductores energizados o partes de circuitos en paneles eléctricos y paneles de equipo, cables de extensión mal mantenidos y herramientas eléctricas, así como rayos. El cumplimiento estricto de OSHA 1910.331-.335, 1910.269 y NFPA 70E Estándar de Seguridad Eléctrica en el Lugar de Trabajo evitaría estos accidentes.
  • Los empleados atrapados en o entre máquinas, aparatos/dispositivos o herramientas que causan la muerte representaron aproximadamente el 2.5% de las muertes. Estos también incluyen derrumbes de zanjas o excavaciones, así como trabajadores atrapados.
