Course Overview


It may go without saying how dangerous the construction jobsite is. In fact, more than 5,000 construction workers are killed and over 150,000 are injured each year. To reduce the number of construction-related incidents, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has identified the four most common causes of injuries and deaths in the industry. These “Fatal Four” include struck-by hazards, caught-between hazards, fall hazards, and electrocution hazards. This course specifically focuses on caught-between hazards as well as how best to avoid them. Common examples of “caught-in” or “caught-between” hazards include being pinned between a moving and a stationary object, becoming caught in a trench or excavation collapse, getting caught in moving machinery, and being trapped under shifting structures or materials. This course provides several examples of each variant of these hazards, with safety information on how to prevent accidents. Utilize the information presented in this training lesson and help yourself avoid the first of construction’s Fatal Four.
