The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s seventh annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction will be a virtual event held Sept. 14-18. The event was postponed from its original May dates because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, OSHA, CPWR—The Center for Construction Research and Training and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health encourage employers and workers to participate virtually or with social distancing measures on job sites. OSHA, CPWR and NIOSH are working to develop activities and materials to facilitate safe stand-downs, such as videos and webinars that can be viewed from anywhere and easy-to-share infographics.
