OSHA National Safety Stand-Down

​May 8 - 12, 2017

TEEX Region VI OTI Education Center Supports the National Safety Stand-Down

​As a part of the US Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration's campaign, TEEX Region VI OTI Education Center has planned several no-cost Fall Hazard Awareness (OSHA #7405) delivery opportunities (Mesquite and San Antonio, TX). 

Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers.

The National Fall Prevention Stand-Down raises awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Fall Prevention Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
