What is the purpose of a stand down day?

The purpose of a stand down day is to talk directly to your team about safety.    National Safety Stand Down Day is the perfect opportunity for employers and especially safety directors to talk directly to employees about safety.

Reminders about fall safety can never be understated.  This event is in its 9th year and it focuses on Fall Hazards and reinforcing the importance of Fall Prevention.


How can you conduct a stand down day?

Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards. A Safety Stand-Down should provide an opportunity for employers and employees to talk about hazards, protective methods, and the company's safety policies, goals and expectations.



Who can participate?

Anyone interested in educating employees in fall hazards, or other job hazards, can participate. In past years, participants included general contractors, sub-and independent contractors, employer's trade associations, federal, state and local governmental agencies, professional societies, institutes, and consumer/labor-management interest organizations. Millions of employees across all 50 states and internationally have participated in previous Stand-Downs.

I would like to participate in this even, is there a list where I can find where this will be held?


A list of Events in your area can be found by visiting OSHA's Stand-Down website. These events are free and open to the public. Attendees of these Events (including any members of the press) must cooperate with the host employers' site access and safety rules.
