​CPWR—The Center for Construction Research and Training will hold an hour-long webinar on March 21 about the organization’s efforts to improve fall safety. Together with NIOSH and OSHA, CPWR coordinates an annual fall prevention campaign whose major event, the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, encourages workers to have conversations with managers about fall safety. According to OSHA, falls from elevation are a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 37 percent of all fatalities recorded in the construction industry in 2016.
