What’s a Safety Stand Down?

A Safety Stand Down is a voluntary event initiated by any contractor or construction company to take a break, get down off their ladders, scaffolding and roof-tops and have some conversations around the hazards of the job, personal protection options and how to be compliant and keep everyone safe on the jobsite. Many companies use the Safety Stand Down week to train their workforce on company safety policies, safety goals and best practices.
