OSHA Offers New Construction Safety Videos

Posted in on Wed, Nov 16, 2011

From the Office of Cooperative Programs –

OSHA has issued 12 educational videos about hazards in the construction industry.  Each video presents a worksite incident based on actual accidents that resulted in worker injury or death, followed by a summary of corrective actions for preventing these types of accidents.  The videos, available in English and Spanish, cover the following topics: falls, sprains and strains, struck-by accidents, carbon monoxide poisoning, and excavation.  Most are animated and are about two to four minutes long.

“I urge anyone who works in the construction industry or operates a construction business to watch the videos,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Health and Safety Dr. David Michaels.  “Share them with your co-workers and friends in the construction industry; organize screenings for your workers; and post them to your web pages.”
