OSHA's National Safety Stand-Down To Prevent Falls In Construction Set for June 2-6

May 30 2014

TAUC is urging all its member contractors to take part in OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down To Prevent Falls in Construction, a week-long event (June 2-6) designed to highlight the dangers of falls — and what everyone can do to prevent them.

OSHA defines a Safety Stand-Down as “a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety…Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards. Managers are encouraged to plan a stand-down that works best for their workplace anytime during the week of June 2-6, 2014.”

OSHA’s goal is “to have over 25,000 employers and 500,000 workers to hold a Stand-Down and if we meet this goal, we will have touched almost 1 out of 10 construction workers in the country,” the agency said. “Participants may include employer’s trade associations, federal, state and local governmental agencies, professional societies, institutes, and consumer/labor-management interest organizations, sub-and independent contractors.”
