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.
