Prevent Falls in Construction

Safety first, members!

The 7th annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction was held last month but ANYTIME is a good time to speak to your employees about fall safety. Employers are encouraged to provide safety demonstrations on fall protection equipment, conduct talks regarding fall-related hazards, safety policies, and goals and expectations.

This national initiative brings much-needed attention to falls, still the leading cause of fatalities in construction. Extensive resources are available on OSHA’s Fall Prevention Stand-Down webpage at http://www.osha.gov/StopFallsStandDown and are presented in various languages.
