Caught-Between Hazards: One of Construction's Fatal Four
Product Code: FFCB
Running Time: 12 minutes

In an effort to reduce the high number of injuries and deaths that occur on construction sites, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, has identified the four most common causes of injuries and fatalities in construction. Known as the “Fatal Four” or the “Focus Four,” these hazards include struck-by hazards, caught-between hazards, fall hazards and electrocution hazards. “Caught-in” or “caught-between” injuries occur when someone is caught, squeezed, pinched or pinned between two or more objects. If not fatal, these incidents often result in crushing injuries such as broken bones, amputations and asphyxiation. This program discusses the various caught-in and caught-between hazards that can be found on a construction site and the safe work practices that workers must follow to protect themselves from these dangers.

Topics include avoiding becoming caught between equipment or objects, the role equipment operators play in preventing caught-between injuries, avoiding excavation collapses, preventing caught-in rotating or moving part injuries and avoiding being caught in collapsing structures.

After watching the program, the participant will be able to explain the following: 
  • What precautions to follow to avoid becoming caught between equipment or objects.
  • What measures equipment operators can take to prevent mobile equipment-related caught-between injuries.
  • How trench and excavation collapses occur and how to avoid them.
  • How controlling hazardous energy and safe tool use can prevent being caught in rotating or moving parts of machinery.
  • What safe work practices to follow to prevent becoming caught in collapsing structures.
