During the week of May 7, 2017, Ray Angelini Inc. and it’s employees participated in The 4th Annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. The week-long safety campaign encourages employers to set aside time to discuss the importance of fall prevention measures. Falls are the leading cause of death among construction industry workers; thus, companies and workers observe a pause during the workday for a bit of education and emphasis through topical discussions, safety demonstrations, and training in hazard recognition and fall prevention.
RAI participates each year by utilizing safety meetings, Toolbox Talks, and inspections of all fall protection systems. The stand-downs also provided management and field employees with the opportunity to openly discuss hazards, protective methods and the company’s safety policies, goals and expectations.
Pictured below is the OSHA Certificate of Participation RAI received for joining thousands of employers in the 2017 Fall Prevention Stand-Down. This certificate of participation is in recognition of the time and effort RAI and its employees devoted to educating and discussing preventing falls with work crews. Of course, every day we need to identify ways to prevent falls and appreciate our dedication to the prevention of falls at all worksites.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration and other federal safety agencies announced that they have designated May 8-12, 2017, for the fourth annual National Safety Stand-Down. The event is a nationwide effort to remind and educate employers and workers in the construction industry of the serious dangers of falls – the cause of the highest number of industry deaths in the construction industry.
The purpose of the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is to raise awareness in preventing fall hazards in construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 364 of the 897 construction fatalities recorded in 2016 (BLS preliminary data). Those deaths were preventable. Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2016.
