Companies who know the value of safety training and comprehensive jobsite inspection, use a Safety Stand Down to stop all work and provide focused safety meetings on all their jobsites. This meeting provides effective communication of safety policies, goals and expectations through all levels of a team.
OSHA and our Stand Down partners believe there is tremendous value in committing 30 minutes to one hour of your day's work to talk about safety, leading to increased employee safety morale. Stopping to talk about safety brings it to the forefront of everyone's mind. It is very important to communicate your firm's safety message to front line workers who constitute the largest group of our industry's workforce. It's easy to participate.
