Fall Prevention Safety Awareness Week – May 7-11, 2018

safety week.png

Please join us this week in hosting a tool box safety talk or safety stand down to discuss the importance of fall protection safety.

The Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction began in 2012 with construction industry stakeholders seeking a way to raise awareness. Falls from heights are the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in construction, with those coming disproportionately from small residential construction contractors.

Falls kill – they are the top cause of construction fatalities and account for one-third of on-the-job injury deaths in the industry. Each year in the U.S. more than 200 construction workers are killed and over 10,000 are seriously injured by falls.

The goal of this national campaign is to prevent fatal falls from roofs, ladders, and scaffolds by encouraging construction contractors to:

• PLAN ahead to get the job done safely.
• PROVIDE the right equipment.
• TRAIN everyone to use the equipment safely.
