Regional Construction Safety Campaign Shifts Focus to Struck-By Hazards

Last month, OSHA launched a four-month campaign in the Mid-Atlantic states to address the four leading causes of fatal injuries in construction. In March, the campaign focused on electrical hazards. Throughout April, it will emphasize struck-by hazards with outreach events and toolbox talks on equipment, work zone driving, falling objects, securing loads, head protection, and examining a struck-by incident. Falls will be the focus next month and caught-in/-between hazards in June.

The campaign partners include OSHA consultation projects, state occupational safety and health agencies in Maryland and Virginia, the Mid-Atlantic Construction Safety Council, and the General Builders and Contractors Association. For more information, contact OSHA Assistant Regional Administrator Nicholas DeJesse in Philadelphia.
