OSHA Kicks Off Stand-Down in D.C.

The kickoff event will be held May 1 at The Wharf Project, a multi-use redevelopment project under construction on the District of Columbia waterfront. The project is moving toward an October 2017 grand opening.

OSHA officials, in partnership with Clark Construction Group and other construction companies and labor organizations, will kick off this year's National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down at a May 1 ceremony in Washington, D.C.

The stand-down is intended to raise national awareness of fall hazards and help reduce workplace fatalities and injuries. During May 8-12, employers at work sites across the country are asked to pause their work for toolbox talks, safety demonstrations, and training on hazard recognition and fall prevention.

The kickoff event will be held at The Wharf Project, a multi-use redevelopment project under construction on the District of Columbia waterfront. The project is moving toward an October 2017 grand opening.

Dean McKenzie, director of OSHA's Directorate of Construction, and Robert Moser, president and CEO of Bethesda, Md.-based Clark Construction Group, are among the scheduled speakers at the event, which will begin at 10:15 a.m., according to OSHA.
