Falls from heights and from the same level continue to be a leading cause of injury in the workplace. May 3 – 7, 2021 OSHA will be holding their eighth annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. During this time ISRI encourages all members to examine their fall prevention plans and to look at their operations for potential fall hazards. OSHA’s Fall Prevention Stand-Down webpage offers a wide range of compliance resources in many languages, including Spanish, Polish, Russian and Portuguese.
