This safety video program on Struck-By Hazards in Construction Environments provides the information employees need to recognize the struck-by hazards that are associated with construction tasks and take steps to avoid them before accidents happen.
Struck-by accidents occur when a person is hit by a moving object. On construction sites this can include being hit on the head by a falling hammer, hit by particles being thrown from a grinder, hit by a truck that's backing up, or hit by a load of wallboard that's being hoisted. Struck-by accidents are one of the four top causes of fatalities in construction work, and can result in serious injuries as well. But they don't have to happen.
Areas covered in the safety video program include:
- what struck-by hazards are,
- personal protective equipment,
- traffic safety,
- heavy equipment,
- hand and power tools,
- masonry walls,
- overhead work and building materials, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
