National Stand-Down To Prevent Struck-By Incidents is Next Week
Struck-by incidents are a leading cause of death among construction workers, and since 1992 the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the construction industry. According to OSHA, the four most common struck-by hazards are being struck-by a flying, falling, swinging, or rolling object. The NORA Construction Sector Council is undertaking a number of initiatives to increase awareness of struck-by hazards and ways to prevent them, including developing this online resource and launching a National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents.
The 3rd annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents is taking place April 11 – 15, 2022 in coordination with National Work Zone Awareness Week.
