Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 370 of the 991 construction fatalities recorded in 2016 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Safety Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
Below we provided some posters for you to download, illustrating some important safety tips and information. Print them off and hang them at the jobsite or post them to remind everyone to stay safe and always wear fall protection when needed.
