OSHA's Fatal Facts: Fatalities Caused by Improper Work Practices (AIA# TCEOSH) (4 credit hours/4 HSW Hours)
OSHA maintains on its website a collection of “Fatal Facts”—summaries of accidents in which one or more workers died because of improper work practices. These summaries often make for gripping reading because they show repeatedly how simple mistakes can lead to tragic deaths. This 4 hour course focuses on thirty of the accident summaries, selected to provide exposure to a wide variety of accident types. The accident summaries are supplemented by background information about industrial accidents in general and the construction industry in particular. In addition, the lessons distilled from the accident summaries are used to formulate three common-sense principles of accident prevention.
