Gundlach Champion Safety Stand-Down Day
GCI has been focused on the safety of our job sites since we were founded in 1898. We are continuing that tradition by participating National Safety Stand-Down Day on May 7, 2018. The focus for this year is a leading cause of death for construction employees, fall-related incidents. Of the 991 construction fatalities in 2016, 370 fatalities were caused by falls from elevation (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Safety Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
