2015 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction
UT Arlington’s OSHA Education Center, along with the other OSHA Training Institute Education Centers, participated in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) 2015 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction on May 4 – 15, 2015 by holding several stand-downs throughout Region VI. Over 875 workers participated in UT Arlington’s stand-downs by taking a moment to address equipment inspections, specific job hazards, and other methods of fall protection. In 2014, OSHA’s Fall Prevention Stand-Down reached over 1,000,000 workers and their goal for 2015 is to reach over 3,000,000 workers – or four out of every ten construction workers in the country.
