OSHA Update: Safety Stand Down for Fall Protection
On March 19th OSHA announced that the planned Safety Stand Down for Fall Protection will occur on June 2nd to the 6th.
During this stand down OSHA is asking all employers to ‘pause their workday’ to talk about fall protection in construction, and discuss topics like ladder safety, scaffolding safety and roofing work safety.
OSHA has also launched an official national safety stand-down website with information on how to conduct a successful stand-down. Afterwards, employers will be able to provide feedback and receive a personalized certificate of participation.
