Day Two, OSHA Fall Protection Stand Down Week
Tuesday, June 3, 2014 – Day Two, OSHA Fall Protection Stand Down Week
To All CCIA Members:
Today is Day Two of OSHA’s Fall Protection Stand Down Week to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction. This is the second of five daily reminders to encourage you to conduct a Stand Down training event at some point during this week, and report, through this link on the CCIA website, the number of employees you have trained in Fall Protection.
Today’s topic is Roofing Safety, and we are providing to you several resources available on the OSHA website, for your use in conducting a Stand Down training program.
The first resource is a Video on Roofing Safety produced by the Washington State Department of Labor. It is provided here at this link.
The second set of resources contains a series of five OSHA Fact Sheets on Roofing Safety During Residential Construction. Although most of our CCIA members are non-residential commercial builders in general, this residential construction-focused material may apply in non-residential situations as well. Good Fall Protection safety practices shouldn’t differentiate between residential and non-residential construction.

You may access other resources various Fall Protection training topics at OSHA’s Stand Down Week website.
The topic for tomorrow, June 4, 2014 – Day Three of Fall Protection Stand Down Week – will be Scaffolding Safety.
On behalf of the CCIA Safety Committee, I wish you a safe and healthy day.
John W. Butts, Executive Director
