Washington — The third annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-By Incidents is increasing to a full week from a one-day occasion.
Set to happen April 11-15, the stand-down is a collaborative effort led by NIOSH’s National Occupational Research Agenda Construction Sector Council. The occasion, scheduled along side National Work Zone Awareness Week, is aimed toward elevating consciousness of struck-by hazards and methods to stop them. In keeping with OSHA, the four most common struck-by hazards are being struck by a flying, falling, swinging or rolling object.
CPWR – The Middle for Building Analysis and Coaching and the NORA Building Sector Council’s struck-by work group have scheduled a sequence of webinars all through the week. Subjects will embrace work zone security, carry zone security, heavy tools and dropped objects.
CPWR is also providing numerous on-line sources, together with infographics, toolbox talks, analysis and two on-demand webinars from final 12 months’s stand-down: Cranes & Lifting – Avoiding Struck-By Incidents Under the Hook and Preventing Struck-By Incidents: Learning by Experience.
