MHI and the Overhead Alliance Joins OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down


Wednesday, April 24, 2019

MHI and the Overhead Alliance are proud to announce their support for OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down, an event held the week of May 6-10, 2019, which intends to prevent falls in construction by providing education and encouraging workplace discussion of safe practices for workers exposed to fall hazards.
 
The combined effort from OSHA, Cranes, Hoist, and Monorails (CHM) Alliance, and other strategic partners offers resources like how-to's and certificates of completion for free at https://www.osha.gov/StopFallsStandDown/.
 
By continuing to reach workers and employers, OSHA aims to raise awareness and decrease the number of fall-related injuries and fatalities and injuries. Employers of companies not exposed to fall hazards can also use this opportunity to have a conversation with employees about the other job hazards they face, protective methods, and the company's safety policies and goals. It can also be an opportunity for employees to talk to management about fall and other job hazards they see.
