In advance of the 11th Annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction on May 6 – 10, 2024, we want to share several new tools and resources to assist workplaces in preparing for and participating in the Stand-Down, as well as ways to get involved. Although this is geared directly towards construction, it’s a great opportunity to pause and have a conversation with all workers about fall prevention:

2024 Stand-Down officially announced:

Resources and Handouts:

Get Involved:

  • If you plan to host a free event that is open to the public and want to post your event on OSHA’s webpage, you may submit the event details here or contact your Regional Stand-Down Coordinator to learn more.
  • Do you have fall prevention resources in other languages? We would love to include them in our Fall Prevention Resources: Additional Languages Page. Please send resources to The Center for Construction Research and Training’s (CPWR) Jessica Bunting: jbunting@cpwr.com

As a reminder, anyone who wants to prevent fall hazards in the workplace can participate in the Stand-Down. Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down by taking a break for a toolbox talk or other safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards. Consider planning a stand-down event that works for your workplace. See Highlights from Past Stand-Downs.
