Press release date: June 2, 2014

Safety is a priority focus for the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and its member companies, and AEM is actively supporting the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down being held June 2-6. The campaign promotes greater awareness among construction industry employers and workers about the seriousness of fall hazards.

Resources the industry can use for the stand-down can be found on the special National Safety Stand-Down section of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website. Educational and training tools include booklets, fact sheets, posters and wallet cards.

AEM is a member of the Construction Sector Council of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), an initiative of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The stand-down is part of OSHA’s ongoing Fall Prevention Campaign, launched in 2012 and developed in partnership with NIOSH and NORA.

In 2013, nearly 2,500 employers and over 50,000 workers took part in regional stand-downs that were held across the U.S. This year, the goal is to involve 25,000 employers and 500,000 workers.

Falls are the leading cause of death in construction, accounting for 269 of 775 total fatalities in 2012, according to OSHA.

AEM is active in many organizations, coalitions and programs advancing safety, and AEM also produces an extensive series of safety manuals, videos and related safety training materials that promote safety awareness in cost-effective, easy-to-follow formats.

Drawing from the combined experience of manufacturers dedicated to safe equipment operation, these materials describe basic, job-oriented hazards and safety procedures. For more information, visit the AEM website at http://shop.aem.org. Some safety materials are offered in downloadable files or in DVD format. AEM members receive discounts on select materials.
