2015 National Safety Stand-Down in construction launches soon
May 4-15, 2015
OSHA and its partners hope to reach 3 million workers during the 2015 National Safety Stand-Down to prevent falls in construction, and you can help! We encourage you to spread the word by re-tweeting and posting our message to reach workers across the nation through social media. Starting this month, the Department of Labor Twitter, Facebook page and blog will feature stand-down event information, important statistics, stories, and links to OSHA materials.
Last year more than 1 million employers and workers across the country joined the effort, making it the largest occupational safety event ever hosted in the United States. With your help we can make this year’s event even bigger and help save lives!
By visiting the 2015 Stand-Down page, you can learn about local events and download or order free fall prevention training materials in both English and Spanish, including the new 2015 Stand-Down poster.
