2021 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction: Official Kick-off with OSHA, NIOSH, & CPWR

Description: Despite ongoing efforts by construction employers and safety professionals to prevent falls, provide fall protection systems, and train workers, falls continue to be the leading cause of death in the construction industry. According to recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 401 construction workers died from falls to a lower level in 2019 To raise awareness of construction falls and work with the industry to better prevent them, the National Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction was launched through the NORA Construction Sector Council in 2012 with leadership from NIOSH, OSHA, and CPWR. Each year, the National Safety Stand Down, where employers and workers take a break to focus on preventing falls, is the cornerstone of the campaign. This year, business leaders, labor organizations, community groups, and other construction industry stakeholders will participate in virtual or socially distanced Stand Down events from May 3-7.

To kick off the week leaders from OSHA, NIOSH and CPWR will share some of the latest data related to OSHA enforcement, incident rates, and underlying causes of falls, as well as real life stories and new fall prevention resources to use during the Stand-Down week and beyond.

Descripción: Stand-Down Nacional Dedicado a la Seguridad para Prevenir las Caídas: Seminario web en español

  • En 2019, 374 trabajadores hispanos de la construcción murieron en el lugar de trabajo, un aumento de casi 27% desde 2018 y 90% desde 2011.
  • En comparación, el empleo hispano en la construcción solo aumentó un 55% entre 2011 y 2019.
  • El mayor contribuyente a las muertes de todos los trabajadores en la construcción son las caídas a un nivel más bajo, causantes de un total de 401 muertes en 2019 - un aumento de 25% desde 2018. Sabemos por investigaciones anteriores que los trabajadores hispanos tienen una probabilidad significativamente mayor de sufrir una caída.

Debido a este mayor riesgo, es fundamental garantizar que los contratistas que emplean a estos trabajadores participen en los esfuerzos proactivos de prevención y protección contra caídas, y que la capacitación de seguridad sea culturalmente apropiada en el idioma o los idiomas para las personas con mayor riesgo.

En este seminario web de 30 minutos, los asistentes aprenderán sobre los riesgos y escuchar´n a panelistas con experiencia en brindar capacitación. También compartiremos más información sobre cómo realizar un Stand-Down y destacaremos varios recursos multilingües que se pueden usar para aumentar conciencia, brindar capacitación y ayudar a los contratistas a planificar la seguridad contra caídas.

Description: Advanced Fall Protection

Presented by: Mark Heffron, Technical Support Specialist, OSHA Region 1, Boston, MA

We all know that if you are exposed to a fall, and only a personal fall arrest system is the only option, well is it, and will it work in the event of a fall.

We hear it all the time, 100% tie off. What does that mean? You can be tied off, have a fall, and still hit the ground or lower level. That is going to hurt!

In this presentation we will discuss and talk about the following:

  • Do your employees have the right fall protection equipment for a fall?
  • Are your employees using PFAS equipment correctly?
  • Do you inspect fall protection equipment routinely?
  • Do you store and care for fall safety equipment properly?
  • Is your fall protection equipment outdated or recalled?
  • What other tips do you use for keeping fall safety harnesses in working condition?

Course objectives

  • Identify various equipment types and equipment limitations.
  • Identify and calculate fall distance for three basic types of PFASs (Personal Fall Arrest Systems).
  • Review some complex fall arrest force and fall distance calculations.
  • Collect the information needed to calculate more complex fall distances.
  • Overview of various Horizontal Lifelines.

Description: Advanced Fall Protection

Presented by: Mark Heffron, Technical Support Specialist, OSHA Region 1, Boston, MA

We all know that if you are exposed to a fall, and only a personal fall arrest system is the only option, well is it, and will it work in the event of a fall.

We hear it all the time, 100% tie off. What does that mean? You can be tied off, have a fall, and still hit the ground or lower level. That is going to hurt!

In this presentation we will discuss and talk about the following:

  • Do your employees have the right fall protection equipment for a fall?
  • Are your employees using PFAS equipment correctly?
  • Do you inspect fall protection equipment routinely?
  • Do you store and care for fall safety equipment properly?
  • Is your fall protection equipment outdated or recalled?
  • What other tips do you use for keeping fall safety harnesses in working condition?

Course objectives

  • Identify various equipment types and equipment limitations.
  • Identify and calculate fall distance for three basic types of PFASs (Personal Fall Arrest Systems).
  • Review some complex fall arrest force and fall distance calculations.
  • Collect the information needed to calculate more complex fall distances.
  • Overview of various Horizontal Lifelines.
