OSHA’s 2019 National Safety Stand-Down Week to prevent falls in construction will take place May 6-10, 2019.

Beacon Mutual and OSHA invite Rhode Island businesses to take part in National Safety Stand-Down Week. A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. Any workplace can hold a stand-down by taking a break to focus on “Fall Hazards” and reinforcing the importance of “Fall Prevention”. It’s an opportunity for employers to have a conversation with employees about hazards, protective methods, and the company’s safety policies and goals. It can also be an opportunity for employees to talk to management about fall hazards they see.
