3 Objectives In this course, we will:  Recognize potential struck by/caught between scenarios  Identify and recognize the hazard(s) of struck by/caught between  Control struck by/caught between hazards

4 Definitions Competent person  “One who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards…” (f) Safety

5 Construction Fatalities (FY ) 5-Year Total: 96 Fatalities

6 Struck By/Caught Between

7 Trenching and excavation Construction equipment Tools and equipment Materials handling, storage, use, and disposal Rigging Motor vehicles

8 Trenching and Excavation Safety issues  Heavy vehicular traffic  Nearby train traffic  Nearby blasting  Rain; freezes and thaws

9 Trenching and Excavation What are the safety issues with:  Heavy vehicular traffic?  Nearby train traffic?

10 Trenching and Excavation What are the safety issues with nearby blasting?

11 Trenching and Excavation What are the safety issues after rain, snow or other event (thawing, freezing)?

12 Trenching and Excavation Safe work practices:  Inspections conducted after any event that increases the risk of a hazardous condition (trench collapse)  Adequately slope or bench sides, or use an appropriate protective system  Enforce employee safe work procedures

13 Construction Equipment Safety issues »Overhead hazards »Low visibility

14 Construction Equipment Safe work practices:  Vehicle(s) used to haul material and loaded by cranes, power shovels, loaders or other such equipment must have a cab shield or canopy that protects the driver from falling materials.

15 Construction Equipment Safe work practices:  Do not drive a vehicle in reverse gear with an obstructed rear view, unless it has an audible reverse alarm, or another worker signals that it is safe.

16 Construction Equipment No visibility zone  Three axle dump truck

17 Construction Equipment No visibility zone  Dozer

18 Construction Equipment No visibility zone  Backhoe loader

19 Construction Equipment No visibility zone  Grader

20 Tools and Equipment Safety issues:  Improper work procedures  Use of defective equipment

21 Tools and Equipment What are the safety issues?

22 Tools and Equipment What are the safety issues?

23 Tools and Equipment Figure 1 Figure 4 Figure 3 Figure 2

24 Tools and Equipment Safe work practices:  Provide adequate training in work procedures before tools and equipment are used.

25 Materials Handling Safety issues:  Improperly stored materials  Incorrectly cutting ties or other securing devices  Improper loading and unloading

26 Materials Handling What safety issues do you see?

27 Materials Handling What are the safety issues?

28 Materials Handling What safety issues do you see?

29 Materials Handling Safe work practices:  Establish and enforce proper work practices, equipment, and controls

30 Rigging Safety issues:  Using defective rigging equipment  Excessive loading  Lack of communication

31 Rigging What are the safety issues?

32 Rigging What are the safety issues?

33 Rigging Safe work practices  Load should not exceed rated capacity  Protect sling from sharp corners  Know center of gravity of load  Inspect the rigging  Keep personnel clear  Never leave load unattended  Wear hardhats when lifting

34 Motor Vehicles Safety issues:  When vehicle safety practices are not observed, there is a risk of being pinned, caught between and/or struck by vehicles.

35 Motor Vehicles Safe work practices  Provide an area of separation between traffic flow and work area

36 Motor Vehicles Safe work practices  All workers exposed to the risks of moving roadway traffic or construction equipment should wear high- visibility safety apparel.

37 Motor Vehicles What are the safety issues?

38 Motor Vehicles What are the safety issues?

39 Preventing Struck By/Crushed By Injuries Comprehensive Safety Program  Development, implementation, and enforcement of program for workers »Includes training in the recognition and avoidance of unsafe work conditions and instruction in safe work practices If a multilingual workforce, instruction should be in the language understood by the worker » Ensures appropriate PPE and usage

40 Summary In this course, we discussed:  Potential struck by/caught between scenarios  Identification and recognition of struck by/caught between hazards  Controlling struck by/caught between hazards
