OSHA Focus Four
Provider: Mason Contractors Association of America
This course provides an overview of construction-related struck by and caught in between hazards, fall protection and electrical safety. Struck- by and caught in between hazards, electrical hazards, and falls are the top four fatality causing events in the construction industry. This program is designed to educate workers in the construction industry to these specific hazards so they can prepare for them, avoid them, and ultimately help eliminate them from the job site.
Module 1: Struck By and Caught-in-Between:
This module provides an overview of construction-related struck by and caught in between hazards. It identifies the types of operations that most often cause these hazards, such as the struck by hazards of falling objects, trucks, cranes, trench hazards and caught in between hazards involving certain types of equipment. Additionally, this module discusses the engineering controls that should be followed and lists the personal protective equipment that should be used to limit or eliminate struck by and caught in between injuries.
Module 2: Fall Protection:
This module gives you a basic understanding about OSHA's role in prevention and elimination of work-related illnesses and injuries. The OSHA standard (1926 Subpart M) identifies areas or activities where fall protection is needed.
The module clarifies what an employer must do to provide fall protection for employees, such as identifying and evaluating fall hazards and providing training. Under the standard, employers are able to select fall protection measures compatible with the type of work being performed.
OSHA places its rules for fall protection in several different subparts in the construction standards, depending primarily on the nature of the work. The standard covers most construction workers, except those inspecting, investigating, or assessing workplace conditions prior to the actual start of work or after all work has been completed.
Module 3: Electrical Safety:
This module provides you with a basic understanding of OSHA's role in the prevention and elimination of work-related illnesses and injuries. This module emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control, and standards.
OSHA's 1926 Subpart K–Electrical is all about the safe operation of electricity. Electricity is accepted as a source of power without much thought given to the hazards encountered. Some employees work with electricity directly during construction. This is the case with engineers, electronic technicians, and power line workers. Others, such as office workers and salespeople, work with electricity indirectly.
