Stand Down to Prevent Falls

National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, May7 4–15, 2015

National Safety Stand-Down EventThe stand down is part of OSHA’s ongoing national Fall Prevention Campaign, a join effort of OSHA, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), and Center for Protection of Workers’ Rights (CPWR). This year OSHA’s Stand-Down event will reach even more workers and continue to raise fall prevention awareness nationwide. The goal is to have over 20,000 stand-downs involving 3,000,000 workers during the weeks of May 4–15. If we meet this goal, we will touch a lot of workers and hopefully save some lives.
