The National Association of Tower Erectors is urging its members to participate in OSHA’s annual Safety Stand-Down. This year’s focus is on falls at worksites and it is entitled, National Fall Prevention Stand-Down.
OSHA explains that a stand-down is “a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety.”
NATE Executive Director Todd Schlekeway said, “OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down presents a great opportunity for NATE member companies to refocus their attention on fall protection issues currently confronting the industry and educate their employees about fall prevention.”
He also directs attention to NATE’s 100% Tie-Off 24/7 Awareness Campaign for tower worker safety.
An OSHA certificate of participation is available for companies that complete a survey form at the OSHA website.
