National Safety Stand Down to Prevent Falls

The purpose of the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards.  Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2014.

2016 Stand-down Goals 

Last year's Stand-Down was a tremendous success, reaching more than 2.5 million workers. This year, OSHA's goal is to reach 5 million workers. If we meet this goal, we will have touched more than half of the construction workers in the country.
