Keeping Our Trade Partners Safe With Stand Down For Safety

Categories: Good Info to Know | Posted: May 15, 2018 | Comments Off on Keeping Our Trade Partners Safe With Stand Down For Safety

Building the best possible home and meeting our homeowners’ expectations is so much of what Evans Coghill Homes is built around. There is, however, another more important part of building a great home that we believe in – everyone on the job site goes home safely everyday. Keeping everyone safe is very important to us. We are all a family building your family’s home and we need to keep the family safe.

On May 9, 2018, Evans Coghill Homes hosted a Stand Down for Safety event in Belmont’s McLean neighborhood focusing on fall protection safety. In the construction industry, many new employees are relatively undertrained, and we believe it is extremely important to provide safety education to all trade partners. According to OSHA, falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry, and in 2016, one-third of these falls were falls from ladders. Most construction accidents can be avoided if we look out for each other, pay attention, and use equipment as it was intended.

At the Stand Down for Safety event, many of our trade partners participated in short bilingual presentations on how to avoid falling accidents, ladder and safety harness use. As our neighborhoods get busier with more new homes being built, like McLean’s Overlake neighborhood, we believe it is important for us to continually look out for our people.

Evans Coghill Homes partnered with Builders Mutual Insurance Company. Builders Mutual continues to be a leader in job site safety training and awareness. Builders Mutual provided lunch for everyone and coordinated all the essential details of the event. Thank you, Builders Mutual, for being a key partner of Evans Coghill Homes. And thank you to our trade partner family for your great work. We ALWAYS want you going home safely.

More information about Stand Down for Safety:

The National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down was conceived by OSHA in 2014 as part of the National Falls Campaign to raise awareness surrounding the severity of fall hazards in construction and the importance of preventing them. In a construction setting, the term “safety stand-down” is used to describe a wide variety of activities where normal work is paused and the entire site focuses on a particular safety issue. While some employers may use stand-downs to call attention to specific hazards present on their site as an intervention, the Campaign has adopted the use of the stand-down to draw attention to fall hazards in a nation-wide weeklong event.  It’s an opportunity for employers to pause work and have a conversation with workers about fall hazards, protective methods, and the company’s safety policies, goals and expectations.
