Falls in construction and other lines of employment are entirely preventable. Yet, in 2012, 269 people went to work at a construction site and never came home because they had fallen to their death.
Please join us the week of June 2nd in an effort to eliminate these tragic accidents by conducting Safety Stand-Down. A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety; this year we encourage you to focus on fall hazards and to reinforce the importance of fall prevention.
OSHA provides all the information you need to conduct a Stand-Down – information and resources can be found at www.osha.gov/StopFallsStandDown.
