White-Spunner Construction is participating in OSHA's second annual Stand Down for Fall Prevention May 4th-15th. Falls are the number one cause of fatalities in the construction industry and have been for many years. They account for roughly 300 deaths per year, all of which were preventable. This year, the goal of the Stand Down is to reach out and inform more than 3 million workers nationwide. At WSC, we will be doing our part to help reach this goal by hosting a stand-down on each of our jobsites and educating approximately 250 workers in the Southeast.
(Pictured: WSC's first stand-down was held Tuesday, May 5 at a jobsite in downtown Mobile.)
