ASSE Joins OSHA and NIOSH in Fall Prevention Campaign

In an effort to lower the alarming number of injuries and fatalities in the construction industry each year, ASSE is teaming up with OSHA and NIOSH to support a new Fall Prevention Campaign.  The national campaign will provide updated prevention information and training materials on falls from roofs, ladders and scaffolds. The literature will be translated into seven different languages and will continually be updated. In addition, the Center for Construction Research and Training has provided a new web page with further material from industry, nonprofit and academic sources on fall prevention.
