OSHA announces national stand-down for fall prevention in construction

from Occupational Safety and Health Administration

The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently announced a national safety stand-down from June 2-6, to raise awareness among employers and workers about the hazards of falls, which account for the highest number of deaths in the construction industry. “Falls account for more than a third of all deaths in this industry,” said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health. “We’re working with employers, workers, industry groups, state OSH plans and civic and faith-based organizations to host safety stand-downs that focus on recognizing hazards and preventing falls. We are getting the message out to America’s employers that safety pays and falls cost.” more
