National Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction Presents Webinar

At 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 1, the National Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction presents Getting Ready for the 2017 Safety Stand-Down. The speakers for the webinar include:

  • Chris Trahan Cain, executive director, CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training
  • Christine Branche, Ph.D., principal associate director, NIOSH, and director, Office of Construction Safety and Health
  • Dean McKenzie, Director, OSHA directorate of construction

Falls are the top cause of construction fatalities and account for 1/3 of on-the-job injuries and deaths in the industry. In 2012, CPWR, NIOSH and OSHA together launched a national construction fall prevention campaign. This hour-long webinar will bring together leaders from all three organizations to showcase the past successes of the campaign and its major event, the National Safety Stand-Down, as well as to highlight plans for 2017.

This year’s Stand-Down is scheduled for May 8-12. CLICK TO REGISTER.
