OSHA: the Stand-Down to Stay Up

Safety Stand-Down, May 8 to 12, 2017.

The event invites employers to voluntarily halt proceedings for a short time, to talk to employees about safety when working at height. The main objective is to identify potential fall dangers in their work areas, and to reduce the amount of falls that cause injury or death, due to unnecessarily lax practices.

Upon competition, businesses can download an OSHA-approved Certificate of Participation, and bolster their credibility via social media, using the hashtag #StandDown4Safety.
