As contractors push hard to make up for lost time due to COVID-19 delays before winter hits, we are asking the industry to pause for 30 minutes on Monday, October 5 to think about safety and prevent work zone accidents, with a focus on line-of-fire incidents.
To Prevent Line-of-Fire Incidents
Set aside time during the workday to focus on work zone line-of-fire incidents
with your employees.
Get your crew together to stop, talk and act on work zone safety and line-of fire incidents. Spread the word on social media using the hashtag #StandDown2SaveLives.
Below are some resources we would encourage your company to use for a safety talk as part of your stand-down event.
