This week is OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction Week. What’s that? It’s a week where we give special focus to fall hazards and fall prevention, raising awareness for this leading cause of death among construction workers. Through education and dedication, we can help prevent injuries and fatalities in our industry caused by falls.

OSHA’s website has great resources on how to your company and employees can take part this week in a Safety Stand-Down – defined as a “voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety.” There are videos to watch, posters you can download and print (Spanish and English), and lists of events in many areas of the country.
