National Safety Stand-Down To Prevent Falls In Construction 

News Release

Lake Mary, Florida – Each May, OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) organizes the National Safety Stand-Down, a time in which construction companies across the country are asked to participate in an awareness campaign speaking directly to employees about on-the-job safety and specifically to focus on “Fall Hazards” and reinforcing the importance of “Fall Prevention.”   According to OSHA, fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 366 of the 971 construction fatalities recorded in 2017 (BLS data). 

“Collage puts forth great effort to assure our employees, trade partners and craftworkers are provided proper safety training and education.  Ongoing safety awareness is paramount, and regular safety stand-downs to discuss safety topics such as the proper use of scaffolds, ladders and harnesses are a key to our overall approach,” says: Rob Maphis, Vice President of Operations and COO, The Collage Companies.
