Stand-down for Fall Prevention

Stand-down for Fall Prevention

While preventing falls where workers use ladders and lifts to carry out their job duties is a year-round task for any organization, OSHA and its partners have declared May 8-12, 2017, as National Safety Stand-Down to prevent falls in construction.

The 4th annual National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down initiative:

“[E]ncourages companies and workers to observe a pause during the workday for topical discussions, safety demonstrations, and training in hazard recognition and fall prevention.”

For details and suggestions on how to conduct a stand-down at your place of business, visit OSHA’s Stand-Down page here.
