2022 National Safety Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction – Webinars and Resources

In advance of the 9th annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction (May 2-6, 2022), OSHA wanted to alert you to the following new tools and resources to assist workplaces in preparing for and participating in the Stand-Down:


    • Fall Protection Expert Q&A Panel (Part 3) on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 2:00 pm EDT (1 hr 30 min) This event takes place during the 9th annual Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction and continues an ongoing series of Fall Protection Expert Q&A Panels with members of the ASSP/ANSI Z359 Committee. It focuses on how to utilize the Z359 fall protection standards, including the recently updated SRL requirements, and will directly answer questions about fall safety on construction job sites. Recordings are available from previous panels in March 2020 and April 2021.  We encourage you to submit a question upon registration.

As a reminder, anyone who wants to prevent hazards in the workplace can participate in the Stand-Down. Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards. Consider planning a socially/physically distanced stand-down that works for your workplace. See Highlights from the Past Stand-Downs.
