April 11-15 is the National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents, organized by the NORA Construction Sector Council Struck-by Work Group. This year’s Stand-Down is expanding from a one-day event to a full week of activities to coordinate with National Work Zone Awareness Week. As the Stand-Down has grown, its topics have increased to include not only work zone safety but also lift zone safety, heavy equipment, dropped objects, and other sources of struck-by injuries.
During the Stand-Down, CPWR and the Struck-by Work Group will host a series of webinars covering relevant topics:
- April 11, 2022 at 1 PM EDT – Preventing Struck-by Incidents in Roadway Work Zones
- 11 de abril de 2022 a las 3 PM EDT – Prevención de Incidentes por Atropellos: Zonas de Trabajo, Equipos Pesados e Impacto de Objetos
