2016 NATIONAL FALL PREVENTION STAND-DOWN

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's 3rd annual National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is May 2 - 6, 2016. This event raises awareness in the construction industry of preventing fall hazards. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that 337 of the 874 construction-related fatal accidents in 2014 were the result of falls, making them the leading cause of work-related death in construction.

Fall protection violations are OSHA's most frequently cited hazardous work conditions.  The Stand-Down is aimed at raising awareness of the need for more emphasis on curtailing these preventable accidents. The Stand-Down is part of OSHA's Fall Prevention Campaign launched in 2012.

The Stand-Down is a voluntary program where employers take a work break to discuss fall hazard prevention. OSHA's FAQ page provides details on how employers can participate.
