This week, as part of the 2019 National Safety Stand-Down, OSHA and the IWCA encourage employers and workers to pause in their workday to talk about fall prevention and dedicate themselves yet again to the safety of this nation’s most valuable resource: workers. For more information on the Stand-Down, visit the OSHA Stand-Down page. IWCA is happy to help in this effort with new resources for members each day.
