Get Ready for Your Safety Stand-Down

National_Safety_Stand_Down_-_Prevent_Falls_in_Construction

Falls are the leading cause of construction fatalities and account for one-third of on-the-job injuries and deaths in the industry. In 2012, CPWR, NIOSH and OSHA partnered to launch a national construction fall prevention campaign.

The fifth year of the National Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction is here. To mark this, an hour-long webinar will bring together leaders from all three organizations to showcase the past successes of the campaign and its major event, the National Safety Stand-Down, as well as to highlight plans for 2016. The event takes place Tuesday, Feb.16, 2016, at 2 pm EST. Read more about the event on our EHS Works blog.

ASSE encourages all members to get involved in planning a stand-down within your company or helping your clients plan one. Although the campaign and stand-down focus on construction, the stand-down is open to any industry that wants to prevent falls in the workplace.
