Fall Hazards: Fall Protection and Fall Restraint on Construction and Demolition Sites: General Requirements and Best Practices
Falls from elevation is the leading cause of deaths in construction. Despite regulations for residential construction and the availability of many innovative fall prevention products, more than 300 workers die due to falls each year. Leading construction companies, contractors, unions, and construction related organizations have comprehensive safety programs with requirements that exceed OSHA regulations. Gain new knowledge on fall protection policies, fall restraint and industry best practices to protect your workers on construction and demolition sites.

Electrical Hazards: Electrical Safety on Construction Projects: OSHA Requirements and Industry Best Practices
Electrocution is one of the most common hazards found on construction sites, according to OSHA, and it accounts for 10 to 15 percent of all construction fatalities. The primary hazards are contact with overhead power lines; defective equipment or tools; improper use of extension and flexible cords; and contact with energized sources, such as live parts and damaged or bare wires. Explore how you can effectively recognize, prevent and control these hazards, discuss OSHA’s electrical requirements for the construction industry and review best practices that can help your organization mitigate electrical risks.

Struck-By-Hazards: What Are They? How Do We Prevent Them?
Approximately 75% of struck-by fatalities in construction involve heavy equipment such as trucks or cranes. Comprehensive safety and health programs must account for the many ways struck-by events can occur. We will review common struck-by-hazards in construction, such as flying, falling, swinging and rolling objects, and discuss best practices for managing such hazards on your job site.

Webinar 4: 3:00PM to 4:00PM CST
Caught-In/Caught-Between Hazards: Steps to Prevent Crushing Injuries and Fatalities
Between 2003 and 2015, caught-in and caught-between injuries resulted in 1,059 construction worker deaths, accounting for about eight percent of the industry’s fatalities during this time. These preventable events occur when a worker is caught, crushed, squeezed, compressed or pinched between two or more objects, such as getting their hand caught in the moving parts of an unguarded machine, being buried in a trench cave-in or being pinned between a wall and piece of heavy equipment. We will define the types of incidents these hazards cause, review related statistical data and discuss proactive solutions you can use to mitigate these hazards.
