National Safety Stand Down

Wednesday, April 26, 2023 | 10:00 AM

Marr Safety Training Center, 15 North Street, Canton, MA 02021



Joe Green from OSHA will be going over this year’s National Safety Stand-Down, which takes place May 1-5, 2023. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction campaign. This is one of OSHA’s most successful safety awareness campaigns that reaches far beyond construction sites. Each year, many non-construction workplaces and international companies have also hosted stand-downs. The goal of the stand-down remains the same—raise awareness to fall hazards and reinforce safe work practices that help prevent fatalities and injuries related to falls.

Rena Harrington will be discussing Workers Memorial Day on April 28.
