Safety Matters

The 5th annual National Safety Stand-Down

will be held May 7-11, 2018


The Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction began in 2012 with construction industry stakeholders seeking a way to raise awareness. Falls from heights are the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in construction, with those coming disproportionately from small residential construction contractors.

  • Falls are the top cause of construction fatalities and account for one-third of on-the-job injury deaths in the industry.
  • Each year in the U.S. more than 200 construction workers are killed and over 10,000 are seriously injured by falls.
