National Safety Stand-Down

stand downThe purpose of the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 337 of the 874 construction fatalities recorded in 2014 (BLS preliminary data). Those deaths were preventable. Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2014.

2016 Stand-Down Goals

Last year’s Stand-Down was a tremendous success, reaching more than 2.5 million workers. This year, OSHA’s goal is to reach 5 million workers. If we meet this goal, we will have touched more than half of the construction workers in the country.

I just wanted to thank MACSC again for the scholarship I received this past Spring. I’m very grateful for the amount of support I have received in school, and you helped me out a lot. I am doing my internship at Wohlsen Construction this summer, and I thought I would share that with you all! I’m continuing my interest in Construction, and maybe someday I’ll make my way down to Philadelphia to work. Thanks so much! Samantha Harsh
