7th Annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction Postponed

The Safety Stand-Down, originally scheduled for May 4-8, 2020, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will be rescheduled this summer.  In the meantime, we encourage you to remember that falls are still the leading hazard in construction and should be an area of focus year-round.  Visit the Stop Construction Falls website for tools and resources that can be used anytime, including a number of videos and webinars that can be used as part of virtual training efforts.

Updates on the Stand-Down, along with new materials, will be added to the site when available.  CPWR’s 2020 Hardhat Sticker order form has been closed temporarily, but will be re-opened when we are able to resume shipping.
