Make Noise for Safety With CPWR’s Construction Fall Prevention ThunderClap

A new campaign looks to plan, provide, and train workers on how to avoid the dangers of construction falls. The difference between this safety campaign and others? It needs your help.

The issue of falls is among the most serious facing workers today. Each year, over 200 American workers are killed in construction falls and another 10,000 are seriously injured. The Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction is now looking to help educate workers using Thunderclap, “the first crowd-speaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together.”

The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state government, private industry, trade associations, academia, professional and labor organizations are coming together to provide the necessary knowledge to the workers who need it most. Using the Thunderclap website you sign up to have a message sent via your social media accounts on the date and time that the Thunderclap takes place. This way, the message hits hard and broadly at once. The Thunderclap format is easy to use and allows you to easily spread information via multiple social media platforms.

Visit CPWR’s Thunderclap page to support this cause. For more information on preventing construction falls there are CPWR’s site and OSHA’s eTool resources.
