In 2014, there were 349 fatalities from falls in the construction industry – almost one worker per day – according to OSHA. These are fellow workers, trying to build a better future, no different than each one of us.

DPR is proud to participate in OSHA’s third annual National Safety Stand-Down on May 2nd. Following OSHA’s plan to raise awareness on preventing falls in construction, our offices and jobsites across the country took part in the campaign educating trade partners, owners and DPR employees on the importance of fall protection:

PLAN ahead to get the job done safely. Take the time to plan out your work each day.

PROVIDE the right equipment. For all employees, for all tasks.

TRAIN everyone to use the equipment safely. No matter how small or minor an issue may seem, it isn’t Nothing can be taken for granted when it comes to safety.

Fall protection saves lives. At DPR, we’re committed to promoting and nurturing an Injury-Free Environment, with the goal of achieving zero incidents on every project. Because at the end of the day, there is someone that counts on you to come home safe. 

Employees and trade partners watch fall protection demonstrations in Tampa, Florida. 

On the same jobsite in Tampa, workers share family photos as a reminder on the importance to make it safely home each day.
