RSVP Today for the 2018 Safety Stand-Down Training Event
4/24/2018

You and your employees are cordially invited to join The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation in conjunction with Boak & Sons, Incorporated, and MALTA Dynamics for an OSHA Stand-Down Training Event.

This is a free event!

This training qualifies for one external credit in the BWC’s Safety Council Rebate Program.

We designed this one-hour training to have a high impact. You are welcome to bring as many team/crew members as possible. Please share this information with anyone that would benefit from attending this type of training.

Last year’s event was a huge success and the feedback was excellent. Attendees thought it was a great use of time and the training had impact. There were a 101 attendees representing 31 different employers, our goal is to surpass that number for 2018. Please support this effort. 

Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) encourages employers across the country to participate in the National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls.

A stand-down is a break from the typical work duties for employers to talk directly to their workers about safety, focusing on fall hazards and reinforcing the importance of fall prevention.
