This week’s national safety stand-down to prevent falls in construction’s goal is to reach 5 million workers. If OSHA meets that goal, they will have touched more than half of the construction workers in the country. That count will double last year’s 2.5 million workers.
Anyone who wants to prevent falls in the workplace can participate in the stand-down. In past years, participants included commercial construction companies of all sizes, residential construction contractors, sub- and independent contractors, highway construction companies, general industry employers, the U.S. Military, other government participants, unions, employer’s trade associations, institutes, worker interest organizations, and safety equipment manufacturers.

“The OSHA safety stand-down week serves as a nice complement to some of the association’s top current initiatives to enhance worker safety, such as the NATE Susan Harwood Grant Fall Prevention Worker Training Course offerings and the NATE Climber Connection Campaign,” said National Association of Tower Erectors Executive Director Todd Schlekeway.
