Last year was the first year OSHA hosted a safety campaign to create awareness for preventing falls in the construction industry. As the global leader in fall protection, Capital Safety was a solid supporter and advocate for OSHA's National Safety Stand-Down campaign. Just announced today, OSHA's second annual Construction Fall Safety Stand-Down campaign will run May 4-15, 2015, and Capital Safety is proud to, once again, participate in this important campaign.
"Building on last year's widespread participation, OSHA has made this year's Stand-Down a two-week event. From May 4-15, employers and workers will pause during their workday for topic talks, demonstrations and training on how to use safety harnesses, guard rails and other means to protect workers from falls. Underscoring the importance of this effort, industry and business leaders, including universities, labor organizations, and community and faith-based groups, have already begun scheduling 2015 stand-downs in all 50 states and around the world."
Capital Safety plans to announce details about their participation with the campaign in April. For more information about OSHA's campaign, read their full press release.
