According to NIOSH, falls remain the leading cause of work‑related deaths in construction, accounting for more than one in three (36.4%) of the total number of fatalities in this industry. Contractors can participate in the National Safety Stand‑Down to Prevent Falls In Construction, with OSHA. The National Safety Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries by taking a break to focus on fall hazards and reinforcing the importance of fall prevention. We deal with fall hazards throughout the construction process and it is important to take the time to address recognition and training.
