ICG Wins National Award For Using The Safety Pole

The National Framers Council recently hosted a photo contest to support OSHA’s 2021 National Safety Stand Down initiative.  This was the 8th annual national event aimed at stopping preventable construction fall-related fatalities across the country.  Building framers were encouraged to participate in safety-focused activities and send in photographic proof of their practices .

Safety Pole’s long-time customer, Innovative Construction Group in Florida was announced the winner for their use of the Safety Pole’s fall-arrest system while installing their roof trusses.  As they stated on their website, “Taking less than an hour, with a two-worker crew, to set up; the fall arrest system, is extremely durable, and satisfies OSHA fall protection requirements for residential construction. Providing fall arrest protection for workers during all phases of framing including the installation of exterior walls, setting roof trusses, sheathing the roof, or installing fascia, the Safety Pole System is an investment ICG is proud to have made.

What is a Safety Stand Down?

A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. Any workplace can hold a stand-down by taking a break to focus on “Fall Hazards” and reinforcing the importance of “Fall Prevention”. Employers of companies not exposed to fall hazards, can also use this opportunity to have a conversation with employees about the other job hazards they face, protective methods, and the company’s safety policies and goals. It can also be an opportunity for employees to talk to management about fall and other job hazards they see.

Safety Pole congratulates ICG for winning this prestigious award. We are proud to have been a part of it!
