Overview

Each year, over 5,000 construction workers are killed and over 150,000 are injured on the job. As this course shows, these numbers can be reduced through more focused safety education and training. This course spotlights “struck-by hazards”, which is one of the “Fatal Four” or “Focus Four” most common causes of construction-related incidents as identified by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). Collectively these four hazards groups, struck-by hazards, caught-between hazards, fall hazards, electrocution hazards, are the greatest threats to construction workers’ safety on the job.

Upon presenting each type of struck- by hazard, this course gives construction workers detailed insight, tips, and guidance for avoiding, preventing, and protecting themselves from struck-by hazards and struck-by injuries. The types of hazards covered include flying objects, falling objects, swinging objects, and rolling objects.

Present this course so all workers are fully aware of the four types of struck-by hazards and how to prevent, avoid, and protect themselves from being injured or killed in a struck-by construction-related incident.
