Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 370 of the 991 construction fatalities recorded in 2016 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Fall Prevention Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
Cal State Dominguez Hills OSHA Education Center will be hosting a stand-down to support this campaign and raise awareness on fall prevention. During the event we will share ideas and materials that maybe used by employers and co-workers to raise awareness at construction sites or any workplace setting.
