Members of the BPGS Construction crew participated in OSHA’s National Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction Week, May 6th – 10th.

What is a Safety Stand-Down?

A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. Any workplace can hold a stand-down by taking a break to focus on “Fall Hazards” and reinforcing the importance of “Fall Prevention”. Employers of companies not exposed to fall hazards, can also use this opportunity to have a conversation with employees about the other job hazards they face, protective methods, and the company’s safety policies and goals. It can also be an opportunity for employees to talk to management about fall and other job hazards they see.

Safety Administrator, Michele Garcia and Superintendents, led the charge for BPGS Construction, conducting Toolbox talks on Fall Prevention with all the subcontractors on currently active sites – Nemours Sports Medicine at 76ers Fieldhouse and Homewood Suites. In addition to the concentrated talks on Fall Prevention, Aerial lift safety was also covered due to presence of multiple aerial lifts on each site.


What would a fireside chat be without coffee and donuts?
