2018 Fall Prevention Safety Stand Down

May 10, 2018

With falls still being the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in the construction industry, this week we hosted Fall Prevention Safety Stand Downs on our projects with all workers in partnership with OSHA, TEXO, NIOSH, NORA, ASSE, NCSE, CPWR, the National Safety Council, OSHA Training Institute Education Centers, and the U.S. Air Force. To raise awareness of fall hazards, all work is being stopped on our sites where we are providing lunch and safety training on the three most common types of falls: those from ladders, those from scaffolds, and those from elevated surfaces.

The group pictured above participated in the stand-down at Methodist Richardson Medical Center this afternoon, where work is currently underway on a new parking garage and vertical expansion.
