A team of five Spanish speaking members of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration participated in an informational phone bank at Univision 45’s studios in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 25. Their mission: to inform the public about OSHA’s Fall Prevention Campaign and other ways to keep workers safe. Falls are the leading cause of construction fatalities, and account for more than a third of all deaths in the construction industry. The OSHA representatives fielded approximately 360 calls during the 5-1/2-hour phone bank.
