Get Involved in the 2018 National Safety Stand-Down

This May, employers everywhere can offer the opportunity to raise awareness about fall hazards and preventing injuries and fatalities through the National Safety Stand-Down, observed May 7-11, 2018.

ASSE has partnered with OSHA in this annual voluntary activity designed for employers to open a conversation about fall protection and prevention, as well as safety in general. Companies of all sizes and kinds have participated in the past ranging from branches of the U.S. military to highway construction companies.

Whether it is a toolbox talk, developing a rescue plan or discussing job-specific hazards in the workplace, employers are encouraged to highlight safety and preventing hazards. OSHA offers resources for conducting a safety stand-down, including posters, a training guide and other educational materials, publications about ladder and scaffolding safety, certificates of participation, an interactive map of regional events and FAQs.
