facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Greg Biffle, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, joins more than 1 million workers this week taking part in the National Fall Safety Stand-Down to emphasize fall prevention and raise awareness about fatal falls in the construction industry. This special event will be hosted at the site of the DAYTONA Rising project, a large-scale renovation of the Daytona International Speedway, on June 4, starting at 12:30 p.m. EDT.


President of Daytona International Speedway Joie Chitwood III; representatives from the design and building company responsible for the construction project, Barton Malow; and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Jordan Barab will all be on hand to address the build team at the site on the importance of fall safety. Additionally, Biffle will be strapping-in to a fall arrest system to demonstrate proper fall prevention equipment and how it saves lives at this site and across the country.


Falls are the leading cause of death in construction, with nearly 300 workers losing their lives in 2012 to preventable falls. Daytona International Speedway and NASCAR join more than 25,000 businesses participating in this unprecedented effort to protect workers. The Stand-Down will run through Friday, June 6, and it is a part of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Fall Prevention Campaign, launched two years ago.
