Annual Construction Industry Stand Down For Safety
Promoting safety on all commercial construction job sites
More than 6,000 construction workers across the city took part in the 10th annual Stand Down for Safety on May 15. Thanks to safety directors, coordinators and safety and training specialists, construction workers heard messages related to proper procedures and methods.Construction came to a halt for one hour as safety demonstrations were conducted in both English and Spanish on topics such as hazard awareness, stairways and ladders, fall and accident prevention.
AGC of America led a press conference at the W.S. Bellows Construction Corp.'s Galleria jobsite at Post Oak Blvd. and San Felipe. The press conference was covered by local media and followed by safety demonstrations. The event affected approximately $3- to $4 billion in construction projects.
