    Silver Spring, MD – A nationwide collaborative campaign to prevent falls in the construction industry was re-launched this past week on Workers Memorial Day (April 28).

    OSHA, NIOSH and the Center for Construction Research and Training (also known as CPWR) are working together to raise awareness and equip contractors and workers with information to help prevent falls – the leading cause of work-related injuries and deaths in the construction industry.

    The campaign includes training events, safety videos and a variety of safety booklets.

    The collaboration came about as part of the National Occupational Research Agenda, which brings together partners from government, labor, management and academia.
