Doran Companies Stand-Down Event
During a May 4, 2015, OSHA Safety Stand-down event at a Minneapolis construction site, Andy Smoka, safety consultant principal at Minnesota OSHA, happened to notice an individual working at elevated heights on Doran’s construction site nearby. Upon closer inspection, Smoka noticed the employee was using the proper fall protection and doing everything exactly right to prevent falls. Smoka then placed a phone call to the site superintendent for Doran Companies to recognize their safety efforts and inform them about the current National Safety Stand-down campaign to prevent falls in construction. The folks at Doran were excited about the idea to conduct a safety stand-down event at their site to reiterate the importance of fall safety for their company and subcontractors.
