Safety Stand Down National Emphasis Program

Since its inception in 2012, the Arizona Chapter has been pleased to rally members in support the National Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. The event is typically held in May prior to the summer construction season and each year Chapter leadership visit Stand Down events at job sites around the state providing support and encouragement. The Stand-Down was postponed several times due to COVID19.

The National Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction will be September 14th through 18th, 2020. In an effort to provide support to Arizona industries during current pandemic, the Arizona Chapter of ASSP in cooperation with ASSP National is pleased to facilitate a web-based presentation geared toward supervisory level workers. ASSP Government Affairs Chair Jeremy Bethancourt provided the presentation as part of ASSP Safety Focus – Construction and requested that the presentation be made available free of charge during the National Event. You can view the presentation on the topic here.
