Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction Featured in European Trade Union Institute News

By on Jul 12, 2012 in Updates |

The European Trade Union Institute has an article up featuring the Campaign To Prevent Falls in Construction. From the article:

“Our industry has lost far too many people to fatal falls,” said CPWR Executive Director Pete Stafford. “Based on national data we’ve collected over the years, we know that no matter how many construction fatalities there are in any given year, consistently one-third of the total are the result of fatal falls. Losing any worker to a preventable fall is simply unacceptable. That’s why CPWR is proud to be a part of this effort to raise awareness of this problem and, hopefully, reduce deaths and injuries from falls on the job.”

The article is available in both English and French.
