What is a Safety-Stand Down?

Each year OSHA encourages jobsites across the country to halt production and allow their workers to focus on training and education relating to fall protection. According to OSHA, the definition of a Safety Stand-Down week is as follows: “A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. The National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction focuses on Fall Hazards and reinforcing the importance of Fall Prevention.”

On this week’s episode of Dynamic Discussions, Greg and David tell us all about OSHA’s Safety Stand-Down week and what that means for construction workers all over the United States! 

OSHA designates one week per year where jobsites shut down their work and bring their employees in to learn about safety, trainings, and equipment inspections. It’s a really special week because fall protection continues to be the number one problem across the country for years in a row. So, the fact that OSHA pays specialized attention to fall protection gives audience to the number one issue in the workplace and gives workers the chance to learn about fall safety in a designated setting.
