OSHA's Focus Four Mitigating Jobsite Hazards
Construction is among the most dangerous industries in the country. In 2010, data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicated that 774 fatal on-the-job injuries occurred to construction workers, more than in any other single industry sector and nearly one out of every five work-related deaths in the U.S. that year. This article summarizes essentials of OSHA’s Focus Four. Resources used to combat Focus Four incidents include outreach and training to help inform and enable employees and employers to better recognize, evaluate and control falls, electrocutions, struck by objects and caught in/between hazards on construction sites and related activities.
