OSHA Focus Four refers to the 4 greatest fatality causing issues in construction. OSHA has identified (1) struck by hazards, (2) caught in between hazards, (3) fall protection and(4) Electrical Safety as the most important areas to train workers to ensure a safe work place.
Our OSHA Focus Four online course is designed to educate workers in the construction industry to these specific hazards so they can prepare for them, avoid them, and ultimately help eliminate them from the job site.
Online Focus Four is a fast, effective and cost efficient way to improve safety at your job site.
OSHA Focus Four Topics 1 and 2: Struck By and Caught-in-Between Hazards
This module covers both Struck By and Caught-in-between hazards. It provides an overview of these hazards and identifies the operations that cause these hazards. The first 2 parts of the OSHA Focus Four covers hazards, such as the struck by hazards of falling objects, trucks, cranes, trench hazards and caught in between hazards involving certain types of equipment.
This module also reviews the engineering controls needed and identifies the personal protective equipment that should be used to limit or eliminate these injuries.
OSHA Focus Four Topic 3: Fall Protection
The Fall Protection module covers a basic understanding about OSHA’s role in prevention and elimination of work-related illnesses and injuries. The OSHA standard (1926 Subpart M) identifies areas or activities where fall protection is needed.
The module clarifies the employer responsibilities in providing fall protection for workers, including identifying and evaluating fall hazards and providing fall protection training. The OSHA standard, allows employers to select fall protection compatible with the type of work being done.
The OSHA Focus Four training covers many OSHA regulations in different subparts in the construction standards, depending primarily on the nature of the work. The standard covers most construction workers, except those inspecting, investigating, or assessing workplace conditions prior to the actual start of work or after all work has been completed.
OSHA Focus Four Topic 4: Electrical Safety
Electrical safety is very important part of OSHA Focus Four. The module on Electrical Safety emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control, and standards.
OSHA’s1926 Subpart K–Electrical deals with the safe operation of electricity and covers situations for workers that deal with electricity (1) directly, such as engineers, technicians and power line workers, (2) indirectly, such as office workers.
