In an effort to reduce the high number of injuries and deaths that occur on construction sites, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, has identified the four most common causes of injuries and fatalities in construction. Known as the “Fatal Four” or the “Focus Four,” these hazards include struck-by hazards, caught-between hazards, fall hazards and electrocution hazards. There are three major types of electrocution hazards in the construction industry: contact with power lines, contact with energized sources and the improper use of extension and flexible power cords. This program explains the safe work practices that construction workers must follow to protect themselves from these hazards.

Topics include maintaining safe distances from power lines, the effects of electrical shock, how electrical burns can occur and be avoided, ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), safety precautions for working on electrical equipment and safe use of extension and flexible power cords.

After watching the program, the participant will be able to explain the following:

  • How to protect themselves from the dangers of overhead power lines.
  • How electrical shock can occur and what it’s effects can be.
  • How electrical burns can occur and be avoided.
  • What the three types of ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) are and how they are used.
  • Which safety precautions to follow when working on electrical equipment.
  • How to use extension and flexible power cords safely.
