Poster 1 for Construction Safety Stand Down July 5

The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour encourages employers across the province to #StandDown4Safety on July 5, 2019.

This event is a special effort of the Newfoundland and Labrador Construction Safety Association and is open to all workplaces.

“A safety stand-down is a voluntary event where employers speak directly to workers about safety.  All workplaces can hold a safety stand-down by taking a break to focus on specific hazards that workers may encounter while working.  This focus on safety allows open communication between management and workers to discuss hazards, controls, and specific company policies and procedures. A safety stand-down is applicable to all industries as everyone faces hazards at their workplace.”
