Construction Safety Update: 2017 Data and Interventions from CPWR

Six of OSHA’s 10 most-cited construction violations last year involved falls. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in its most recent CFOI data that construction fatalities rose by 4 percent in 2015 to 937, the highest number since 2008, and that several construction occupations recorded their highest fatality total in years, including construction laborers, carpenters, electricians, and plumbers. OSHA and allied organizations and agencies encouraged construction contractors to focus on falls May 8-12 during this year’s 4th Annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction.

This webinar will review recent fatal and nonfatal injury and illness information and resources for prevention, with an emphasis on falls, silica and noise.
