National Safety Stand Down Day
The Fourth Annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Construction Falls is happening now. Across the country, companies are pausing work for toolbox talks, equipment audits, and educational activities addressing this hazard. CLICK HERE for a video introduction. You can join the Center to Protect Worker Rights (CPWR) at 2 pm EST for their webinar on the latest research on fall fatalities and fall prevention from their CPWR Quarterly Data Report. This 30 minute webinar will review the main findings of the report, and highlight the need to reduce fall injuries and fatalities in construction and the importance of the Stand-Down and the overall CPWR-NIOSH-OSHA National Fall Prevention Campaign.
