Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) encourages employers across the country to participate in the National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls. A stand-down is a break from the typical work duties for employers to talk directly to their workers about safety, focusing on fall hazards and reinforcing the importance of fall prevention.
This year, members of Local participated in a stand-down coordinated by general contractor, The Beck Group at the Dickies Arena job site in Fort Worth, Texas. One in three workplace falls occur on construction job sites, according to OSHA research. The Central South Carpenters thanks The Beck Group for their attention and commitment to this all-important matter.
