CCI Conducts Stand-Downs For 500 People!
CCI is proud to report the results for our National Safety Stand-Down for Fall Prevention 2019! We reached out to our clients to schedule safety stand-downs for their workers and in the hopes of beating our numbers from previous years … and the numbers are in!
In the months of May & June 2019, CCI performed safety stand-downs for 491 people, upping participation by almost 100 from 2018. Our stand-downs are an opportunity to bring workers together from various trades to ask questions, learn, and engage with their workplace safety concerns. We are proud of our clients’ continued commitment to safety, their workers, and an engaged and responsive safety culture.
Falls continue to rank as OSHA’s #1 culprit for workplace injuries and fatalities in construction, accounting for a third of those harmed during the course of work, annually. CCI believes that every one of these incidents were preventable. We hope that our stand-downs continue to make a difference when it comes to bringing workers together to learn about the tools and methods available to protect themselves and stay safe while working in construction. Above all, 491 people are more likely to come home safe and sound to their families, and that is a cause worth fighting for.
