Latest Data Dashboard, Data Bulletin Examine Transporation Incidents
Transportation incidents are a leading cause of injuries in construction, with more than 2,600 workers dying from them over the past 10 years. September’s Data Bulletin and a new Data Dashboard focus on this topic, showing that collisions with other vehicles were the most common event for nonfatal injuries, and that pedestrian vehicular incidents were the most common type of fatal event. The dashboard provides data by year, subsector, and detailed events, as well as the ability to examine days away from work for nonfatal injuries.
Study Analyzes Underlying Causes of Falls
Survey: Struck-by Hazards, Barriers, and Opportunities in the Construction Industry
This survey explores causes of struck-by injuries; barriers to their prevention; and examines measures to protect workers and barriers to implementing them.
CPWR’s Research to Practice (r2p) program recently conducted a survey to 1) explore causes of struck-by injuries, barriers to prevention, and ways to raise awareness and ensure use of safe practices; 2) learn about measures being taken to protect workers and barriers to implementing controls for common struck-by hazards; and 3) gain insights into knowledge of struck-by hazards, the role of planning in prevention, and the motivators, resources, and support needed to prevent incidents. In this webinar, members of the r2p team will review findings from the survey and share information about a pilot planning program to prevent struck-by incidents, including how to participate in testing it.
