  • The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched a “Construction Incident Prevention Initiative” campaign this summer to curb construction fatalities.
    The initiative is designed to identify and eliminate safety and health hazards at construction sites and to prevent injuries and fatalities resulting from the four leading causes of incidents: falls, crushing events, electrocutions and caught-in-between events.
    The initiative will target health hazards involving silica, lead and hexavalent chromium, and will draw on OSHA’s national campaigns to prevent fall hazards at construction sites and heat illness among outdoor workers.
    Compliance officers will focus enforcement effort on construction sites covered by OSHA’s area office in Wilmington, which includes the state of Delaware.
