Join OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, May 3–7
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has scheduled the eighth annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction for May 3–7. OSHA encourages construction employers and other stakeholders to join the event to promote awareness and training to address one of the industry’s most serious dangers.
OSHA developed the fall prevention campaign, as part of the national safety stand-down and in partnership with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, National Occupational Research Agenda and The Center for Construction Research and Training. Since 2014, this collaboration has helped train nearly 10 million workers on fall prevention.
OSHA encourages everyone to use #StandDown4Safety to promote the event on social media, and to share feedback after their events and obtain a personalized certificate of participation.
OSHA’s Fall Prevention Stand-Down webpage offers a range of compliance resources in many languages, including Spanish, Polish, Russian and Portuguese.
