1 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Fall Protection Susan Harwood Grant Training Program 2013 Steel Erection & Concrete Fall Protection

2 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Learning Objectives Understand the OSHA requirements for fall protection during steel erection Understand the OSHA requirements for fall protection during concrete construction Identify best practices for protecting workers from falls performing steel erection and concrete construction

3 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Steel Erection Fall Protection

4 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC An employee was connecting X-braces at the end of 40-foot long bar joists. Only one end of the bar joist had been attached. The employee was sitting on the unattached end. He lost his balance, dislodging the bar joist from its end support, and fell approximately 24 feet to his death. OSHA Fatal Fact

5 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Walking/Working Surfaces No shear studs, anchors etc. can be installed on top flanges unless/until another walking surface is provided.

6 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Shear Studs Shear studs are commonly used in construction for composite concrete decks. But they are a tripping hazard. Workers may not walk on beams with studs or other protrusions. There must be an work alternate platform.

7 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Joist As Fall Anchorages Joists cannot be used as fall arrest anchorages unless there is written approval by a qualified person.

8 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Fall Protection on Metal Buildings Purlins and girts may not be used as fall arrest anchorages unless approved by a qualified person. May not walk on purlins until all permanent bridging has been installed and fall protection is provided.

9 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Fall Protection Must be provided at 15 feet. Exceptions (15 – 30 feet) –Initial connecting –Decking in a “Controlled Decking Zone”

10 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Connector An employee who, working with hoisting equipment, is placing and connecting structural members and/or components.

11 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Connectors Connectors are allowed to work up to 30 feet without protection if they: –Complete connector training. –Have been provided with a personal fall arrest system and wear the equipment. –Have anchorage systems available.

12 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Using Lifts Using lifts, where feasible, eliminates the need to climb on the steel and eliminates some fall protection issues.

13 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Fully Planked Decks A fully planked or decked floor or safety nets shall be maintained within two stories or 30 feet, whichever is less, directly under any erection work being performed

14 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Controlled Decking Zone (CDZ) A marked area in which initial installation and placement of metal deck may take place without fall protection. Access to the zone is controlled. No more than 90’ X 90’ wide.

15 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Decking Can be done in a “Controlled Decking Zone” up to 30 feet. Workers must be trained. Workers must not cut holes or must cover all floor or deck holes immediately when formed. Perimeter protections must be established as soon as possible.

16 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Controlled Decking Plan Not required but advisable Can be used between 15 & 30 feet. Must be developed by a qualified person. Must be site specific. Must establish alternate procedures for fall protection. Employees must complete CDZ training.

17 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Decking Gaps Decking gaps must be filled. Wire mesh, exterior plywood, or equivalent, shall be installed around columns where planks or metal decking do not fit tightly.

18 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Decking Operations Employees working over 30 feet must be protected by conventional fall protection.

19 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Decking Pre-Engineered Buildings Insulation and roof panels on Systems Engineered buildings fall under this section.

20 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Simple Saver Plus Insulation Pre-Engineered Buildings System creates a fall protection netting while holding insulation.

21 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Skyweb System Pre-Engineered Buildings Acts as an internal safety net.

22 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Use of Decking Systems (Pre-Engineered) Mechanical decking systems and rolling scaffold systems eliminate many fall exposures on large pre-engineered roof decks Elaminator System

23 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Custody of Fall Protection Controlling Contractor must inspect and accept control and responsibility of the fall protection, such as cable guardrails, when steel erector leaves the site. If “CC” must be sure that the cables meet standards before accepting.

24 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Concrete Fall Protection

25 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Rebar Protection 2x4 mount cap Caps can pop OK Mushroom Cap Reinforced Cap 2 x 4 mount cap Caps must protect from injury, especially impalement. Mushroom caps are not allowed on low vertical bars.

26 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Positioning Systems Positioning Devices Provide Hands-free Work –Additional Fall Protection (tie-off) may be required to move point-to-point or access another area.

27 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Working on Rebar Wall Cages Workers must be protected above 6 feet when working on ALL rebar assemblies Workers may move point-to-point on built-in place rebar assemblies up to 24 ft. if they are ladder like. But only 6 feet if the assembly is built on the ground and lifted into place. (OSHA Interps & )

28 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Fall Protection on Vertical Forms Workers must be protected when 6’ or higher. They must position off before working on column and wall forms. If the vertical form is near an edge, the employee must establish fall protection before he climbs the form. Hooked

29 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Construction of Shored Forming Employees are exposed to major falls while constructing form work around perimeter columns. They must have fall protection This worker is tied off to column behind the edge. FALL

30 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Form Bracket Scaffolds Form bracket scaffolds over 10 feet high must have guardrails or employees must be tied off.

31 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Form Scaffolds This is a good example of a form scaffold with proper guardrails.

32 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Column Forms Falls? Scaffolds or lifts help reduce fall exposures.

33 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Flying or Table Top Forms Workers near open edges must tie off as these employees are doing. They can tie to pre- set anchors, the columns behind or other suitable anchorages.

34 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Safe-T-Straps Safety straps are effective simple anchors in concrete construction. They slip over rebar and are them embedded in the concrete.

35 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Edges Must Remained Protected If guardrails were permanently affixed to forms, edges would remain protected. If guardrails must be removed, temporary warning lines must be installed ( 15 feet back) or all workers must be tied off.

36 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Install Proper Guardrails Form decks should extend out far enough to accommodate post tension jacking work. Or alternate access must be provided

37 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Fully Protect Holes The midrail is missing. This hole needs additional guardrail protection. Also note tripping hazards.

38 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Potential Trip Hazards There are potential trip hazards on reinforced floors. Temporary walkways are a good hazard control.

39 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Pre-Cast Concrete Erection Controlled Access Zones Employees may work in a CAZ under a qualified fall plan when it can be shown that standard fall protection is infeasible. Plan must be site specific. All employees must be trained in the safe erection of Pre-cast. A Safety Monitor must oversee the fall safety. Warning lines must be set along the edges and guardrails installed as soon as possible.

40 OSHA Susan Harwood Training - AGC Setting & Receiving Planks Approach the plank when it is waist high. Restraint should always be used. The Safety Monitor oversees the safety of the setting process if working under a plan.
