National Safety Stand-Down
The 8th annual National Safety Stand-Down to prevent falls in construction is scheduled for May 3-7, 2021. The National Safety Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries. Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards. Employers will be able to provide feedback about their Stand-Down and download a Certificate of Participation following the Stand-Down. For more information:
You can also "order hardhat stickers to recognize worker participation in stand-down events (including virtual ones) or pocket-sized Hazard Alert Cards with tips for safe use of ladders, scaffolds, aerial lifts, and personal fall arrest systems.
Please Note: We will be filling orders for stickers and Hazard Alert Cards as quickly as possible, but with a scaled back shipping schedule due to COVID-19 safety measures. If you would like to have your order in time for the Stand-Down week, please place it by April 16th."
