Honeywell fall protection solutions supports National Safety Stand-Down, June 2 – 6

May 28, 2014

Construction industry Safety Stand-DownIn an effort to raise awareness for worker safety, Honeywell (NYSE:HON), manufacturer of Miller fall protection solutions, will partner with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to support a nationwide event to promote better safety on construction sites to prevent falls.

The weeklong event, National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, June 2-6, 2014, is focused on recognizing hazards and preventing falls by getting the message out to America's employers that safety pays, and falls cost.

“According to OSHA, falls account for more than a third of all deaths — the highest number of fatalities — in the U.S. construction industry,” said Ravi Ramanathan, general manager, Fall Protection for Honeywell Safety Products-Americas. “Falls can be prevented with strong, enduring safety cultures that incorporate all four cornerstones of success: leadership, education, analytics and equipment.”

OSHA is asking employers and workers to “stand-down,” or pause their workdays during the week, to talk about fall prevention in construction, and discuss topics like ladder safety, scaffolding safety and roofing work safety.

Honeywell Safety Products will host special “Miller Fall Protection Road Shows” at companies and work sites around the United States. Miller Road Show presentations demonstrate the forces associated with falls through on-site drop tests, explain how various shock absorbers and/or deceleration devices safely arrest falls, and teach people the ABC’s of fall protection. Also included are instructions on how to calculate fall clearance, updates on OSHA regulations and ANSI standards, solutions for common fall protection problems, and demonstrations of new fall protection products and systems.

In addition, the Miller brand will be featured on informational billboards promoting the National Safety Stand-Down in 30 cities around the country.
