The 2017 Stand-Down May Be Over, but the Campaign Is Year-Round!
May 8-12, 2017 marked the 4th annual National Safety Stand-Down. Did you participate? If so, let us know by submitting your Success Story. You can also check out what others did by reading their Success Stories.
While the Stand-Down is the key event in the Falls Campaign, it is important not to lose sight of the fact that falls account for a third of all construction worker fatalities once it’s over. Consider using the Stand-Down as a jumping off point for a year-round fall protection program. And if you didn’t participate in this year’s Stand-Down, now is the perfect time to join in on the Campaign and take advantage of all the resources we have to offer!
