This week, May 8-12, Builders Mutual will participate in OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down for fall protection for the fourth consecutive year. The safety stand-down is a voluntary event designed to encourage employers and workers to pause one day during the week to discuss fall hazards and reinforce the importance of fall protection.
Risk Management consultants will be visiting policyholders and encouraging them to participate in the stand-down on their job-sites. Builders Mutual, the North Carolina Department of Labor, and Little Giant Ladder Systems are bringing tailgate safety talks to the job-site in Fuquay-Varina and Concord, NC to promote fall protection education. A third stand-down will be held in Columbia, SC as well. Follow us on Facebook as we share #tailgatetoeducate events.
Encourage your members to take a few minutes to pause this week and focus on safety and its importance in their workplace. Share the brand new Job-Site Safety Institute (JSI) Ladder Safety video in English or Spanish with your members or on your social media pages to spread the word about the National Safety Stand-Down.
