The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched its Safety Pays,
Falls Cost campaign April 26, 2012.
The nationwide information and media campaign was created to prevent construction-related
falls and is designed to urge contractors, particularly small residential contractors,
to provide their workers with fall-protection training and equipment.
The campaign was developed in partnership with the National Institute of Occupational
Safety and Health (NIOSH) and NIOSH’s National Occupational Research Agenda program.
Through the campaign, OSHA and NIOSH work with trade associations, labor unions,
employers, universities, community and faith-based organizations, and consulates
to provide employers and workers with education and training regarding common-sense
fall-prevention equipment and strategies that save lives.
