Stand Down to Prevent Falls
Talk to Your Team About Fall Risks
May 1st to 5th, 2023 OSHA will be holding a National Safety Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. Your participation in this event can be a much or as little as you would like; however, we are strongly encouraging everyone to take this time to speak with your team about fall hazards, preventing falls, and the importance of taking fall risks and protection seriously.
May’s Toolbox Talks topics will focus on the three pillars of OSHA’s Fall Prevention campaign – Plan. Provide. Train. The topics will be grouped accordingly, and we hope you will take the opportunity to use them all, rather than just one per week.
Throughout the month of May, we will be sending weekly eBlasts with additional resources, training topics, worksheets, and infographics that you can use to bring awareness to preventing falls. Please feel free to reach out to our team for assistance or guidance in how to best present the information to your employees.
Please send us pictures of your team participating in this important campaign or post them to social media using the hashtag #StandDown4Safety – we’d love to see what you are doing with your team to support this important message!
