Fifth Annual National Stand-Down Begins May 7

Thousands of worksites will join OSHA and its partners for the annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction May 7-11, 2018, with events across the country. Employers and workers will pause during the workday to talk about fall hazards, OSHA compliance, and industry best practices to prevent falls in all workplaces. The lack of proper fall protection is the most frequently cited OSHA violation.

Deputy Secretary of Labor Patrick Pizzella will attend a national kick-off event May 7 in Washington, D.C., at the newly constructed DC United soccer stadium, where experts will demonstrate proper fall arrest systems. For a list of other events, and educational resources in English and Spanish, visit the Stand-Down webpage.
