This year the focus of the Stand-Down is on “Fall Hazards” and reinforcing the importance of “Fall Prevention,” however your organization may participate simply by taking a break to focus on other safety topics. Managers are encouraged to plan a stand-down that works best for their workplace anytime during the May 8-12, 2017.

Organizations are encouraged to highlight their participation by sharing photos with KEMI via email ( or on social media (tag @KEMIworkerscomp and use the hashtag #standdown4safety).

Below are a variety of resources available from OSHA regarding the Safety Stand-Down. You may also want to check out their Suggestions to Prepare for a Successful “Stand-Down and visit their campaign page.
