Stand for Safety

The 2020 Stand for Safety campaign runs May 4-8. Sign up your firm here.

Our annual Stand for Safety campaign (formerly the Safety Stand Down) is a leadership opportunity for our members to demonstrate their commitment to safety and the well-being of their workforce. In 2018, Stand for Safety Week reached over 8,000 workers on 600 job sites, and the 2019 campaign is expected to reach at least 10,000 workers.

Companies that Stand for Safety during this campaign know the value of safety training and comprehensive job site inspection. Participating companies choose a day to shut down their job sites for about 30 minutes and host a toolbox talk on a designated safety topic, followed by an informal site lunch to inspire conversation. Not only does this enable your company to demonstrate its commitment to safety, but it also boosts morale at the beginning of the busy season.

“Our Stand for Safety campaign success is the result of our very dedicated Safety & Health Committee,” said Dan McLaughlin, Executive Director. “The safety professionals who sit on this committee coordinate our safety awards program, forums and training opportunities, and the Stand for Safety. They are committed to safe practices throughout the industry.”

The Stand for Safety campaign was written up on Bisnow and member company Clarion Construction created this video to document what the campaign has done for their company's safety culture.
