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.
