2019 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction

During the week of May 6-10, 2019 Perry Engineering participated in the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. Falls are the primary cause of death in the construction industry, and each year Perry Engineering joins construction companies nationwide with project safety stand-downs to discuss fall hazards and fall prevention. We are a Platinum Level participant, having participated for the past 5 years. Perry held 8 stand-downs during the week involving approximately 90 field employees with whom we discussed past fall incidents, efforts we are currently using to prevent falls, and asked for employee’s thoughts and suggestions on fall prevention. Through our education and training efforts we have significantly reduced the number of fall related incidents and injuries.
