ASSE Urges Chapters and Members to Join in June 2-6 National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction
ASSE and its Construction Practice Specialty are supporting fully OSHA’s June 2-6 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. ASSE urged its chapters and members to embrace this opportunity to demonstrate safety and health professionals’ leadership in reducing the leading cause of death in construction. What ASSS members already do to help save workers lives should be done on every construction worksite.
ASSE has encouraged each chapter to hold a meeting on falls and to reach out to OSHA area offices to build partnerships on outreach efforts. Members are encouraged to make sure their employers participate in the Stand-Down and to spread the word about the Stand-Down to other safety and health professionals and companies and try to get them involved.
