What is a Safety Stand-Down?

It's when you take a break from normal work activities so your crew can focus on a particular jobsite safety topic, like training on safe use of ladders or inspection of full body harnesses.

Falls are the leading cause of death in construction, as you can see from this Washington State infographic (753 KB PDF) and brief video about the National 2016 Safety Stand-Down:
