This April 11th -15th marks the 3rd annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents in coordination with National Work Zone Awareness Week. Struck-by injuries are produced by the forcible impact of an object or piece of equipment. According to OSHA, the top four hazards include being struck by a flying, swinging, falling, or rolling object. Struck-by incidents are a leading cause of death for construction workers and the leading cause of nonfatal injuries throughout the construction industry.
This movement works to minimize struck-by incidents by providing handouts, planning tools, and training programs. During this week, the NORA Construction Sector Council Struck-by Work Group will host several webinars and they have developed a plethora of materials that discuss work zone, lift zone, and heavy equipment safety resources along with additional tools to prevent struck-by incidents.
