OSHA 10 Hour Construction: Module 3B - Struck-By & Caught-Between Accidents

1 hr. Online Course

Level: Fundamental

Item#: OSHA10-032

SME: Dan Johnson, CSP (SFI Compliance Inc.)

“Struck-by” and “caught-between” accidents are major causes of injuries and fatalities on construction worksites. Struck-by incidents are classified as accidents where workers are hit by swinging booms, falling objects (such as bricks from a scaffold), or flying objects (such as particles flying off an object being drilled or ground by a power tool). Caught-between accidents are often fatal occurrences when a worker is unwittingly caught in the gears of machinery; pinned between a vehicle and a wall, or even caught by the clothing or hair on a moving part and pulled into danger. This 1-hour interactive online course provides information to assist the learner in the identification, avoidance, and control of these hazards in the workplace. While workers may need additional training based on OSHA standards and the specific hazards of their jobs, RedVector’s Worksite Safety courses can help inject entry-level workers with critical knowledge on a variety of OSHA-regulated safety and health topics.

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job.
