June is National Safety Month

Safety should always be top of mind, but National Safety Month is a reminder to review your safety plan, educate employees on safety requirements, review and replace PPE, and be vigilant of safety risks.

Falls account for 33% of all construction deaths, and eliminating falls in construction would save more than 300 lives every year.


Reviewing your Fall Prevention Program will help to minimize, if not eliminate, risk of injuries. If you don’t already have a Fall Prevention Program in place, now is the time to get one and ensure all employees understand the importance of following the program to keep them safe. Some of the most frequent falls include;

  • Falls from ladders
  • Falls from a roof
  • Falls from a scaffold
  • Falls down stairs
  • Falls from a structural steel
  • Falls through a floor or roof opening
  • Falls through a fragile roof surface
