Columbia, Maryland / May 21, 2014 – Advantage Engineers, LLC will be participating in OSHA’s National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down event. The purpose of this event is to raise construction fall hazard awareness.

According to OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 269 of the 775 construction fatalities recorded in 2012. In 2013, 13 workers in the telecommunications industry were killed at communication tower worksites. This is more worker deaths than in the previous two years combined. Four more workers were killed in the first weeks of 2014. OSHA has found that a high proportion of these incidents occurred because of a lack of fall protection.
