Struck-by incidents are a leading cause of death among construction workers,[1]  and since 1992 the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the construction industry.[2] Through an effort coordinated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) Construction Sector Council, CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training is hosting the first National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents during National Work Zone Awareness Week.

This free, 1-hour stand down will provide practical information that stakeholders can use on their job sites to prevent struck-by incidents, and answer questions about struck-by hazards in work zones.
