Focus on Fall Safety

Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 401 of the 1,061 construction fatalities in 2019 were caused by falls from elevation. All of these deaths are preventable.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, with support from the National Safety Council and dozens of other groups, asks employers to take a few minutes to discuss fall protection and safety when working from heights this May. It can be as easy as sharing a video.
