NIOSH Hosts Annual Fall Safety Awareness Event

The National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction takes place May 2-6.

Hosted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and its partners, the annual event is an opportunity for employers and workers to pause on the job to plan to prevent falls in the workplace.

According to NIOSH, falls from elevations are the most common cause of death for construction workers and are entirely preventable. In 2020, there were over 350 fatal fall deaths on construction sites, accounting for 34% of all construction fatalities.

“Employers can set aside time on the job to reinforce the knowledge, training and resources that are available for creating safer workplaces and preventing fatalities and injuries related to falls,” said NIOSH director John Howard, M.D.

Materials in both English and Spanish help employers plan, provide and train. More information is available at
