Stand-down raises awareness of struck-by hazards

The fifth annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-By Incidents is April 15-19.

The stand-down is a collaborative effort led by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s National Occupational Research Agenda Construction Sector Council. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness regarding struck-by hazards and how to prevent them. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports the four most common struck-by hazards are being struck by a flying, falling, swinging or rolling object.

CPWR—The Center for Construction Research and Training, NIOSH and the NORA Construction Sector Council offer online resources in support of the initiative, such as infographics, toolbox talks, research and webinar recordings.
