Struck-By Hazards: One of Construction's Fatal Four
Product Code: FFSB
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. “Struck-by” injuries occur when any type of an object or piece of equipment makes forcible contact with an employee. Struck-by hazards are divided into the following groups: flying objects, falling objects, swinging objects and rolling objects. This program discusses specific hazards from these four groups and the safe work practices workers must follow to protect themselves from these threats.

Topics include safety tips for preventing each group of struck-by injuries, personal protective equipment, safe tool use and preventing vehicle incidents.

After watching the program, the participant will be able to explain the following: 
  • Which common flying object hazards can be found on a construction site and safety tips for avoiding them.
  • What the common sources of falling object hazards are and how to prevent falling object injuries.
  • How swinging object hazards are created and how to protect against them.
  • How rolling object incidents typically occur and how they can be prevented.
