Depicting safe work practices that can eliminate common hazards during construction, the videos were produced as short segments that are easily understood and geared towards employers and workers alike.
Nearly 800 construction workers die on the job each year, according to OSHA.
“I urge anyone who works in the construction industry or who operates a construction business to watch the videos,” said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational health and safety.
“Share them with your co-workers and friends in the construction industry, organize screenings for your workers and post them on your webpages,” he said.
Showing just how quickly workers can be injured or killed on the job site, the videos are intended to help employers and workers to identify, reduce and eliminate construction-related hazards.
Topics covered include:
- Struck-by Accidents:
- Excavations in Construction:
Most of the videos are two to four minutes in length, and they are available in both English and Spanish.
The video provides an overview of the key safety issues that residential builders and workers need to focus on to reduce accidents and injuries.
Based on the NAHB-OSHA Jobsite Safety Handbook, this DVD is intended to be used as part of an essential residential construction safety-training program and includes two 20-minute videos on one DVD.
