Falls are still the number one killer as well as the number one source of injuries in the construction trade. To change this, several organizations including NIOSH, OSHA, CPWR as well as state and private sectro have partnered and created a website.
http://stopconstructionfalls.com/ is a “Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction”. Their goal is to prevent fatalities and injuries through a 3-pronged approach:
The website includes, among other things, an interactive map of the US on which you can track construction fatalities as well as an interactive map of all constructive fatalities. (Click on the image below to go to the maps)
You’ll also find a short 13 mn video clip on fall protection, fact sheets, impact cards, campaign materials, toolbox talks, handouts, training materials and more.
