Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The U.S. Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration is looking to partner with AGC chapters and member firms for a nationwide safety stand-down.  The agency recently announced a national safety stand-down June 2-6, 2014, to raise awareness among employers and workers about the hazards of falls, which account for the highest number of deaths in the construction industry. 

AGC encourages all members to participate in the safety stand-down. In addition, chapters may contact their local OSHA offices for information on how to partner with them and further reinforce the importance of fall prevention. The attached flyer can be used to promote the event. For your convenience, a Spanish version of the flyer is also available. 

For further information, please contact Kevin Cannon, AGC's safety director.
