Stand DownAnnual Construction Industry Stand Down For Safety Focused On Fall Protection May 2-13, 2016

AGC Houston and the Safety Committee are pleased to announce that the 2016 Safety Stand Down will take place during May 2-13, 2016. Last year was the first time in the event's history that we alligned our program with OSHA  - exending the Safety Stand-Down to two weeks and focusing on Fall Protection.

AGC Houston estimates that 12,500 construction workers took part in the safety demonstrations;  It’s a phenomenal success and directly attributed to the commitment that our members have to the safety of their field employees. For the past 13 years, Houston members have been key supporters  of the event - leading safety performance at the city, state and national levels.
