Question Description

Instructions

OSHA has identified four categories of hazards that account for more than 50% of all construction fatalities:

  • Falls (36.5%)
  • Struck by object (10.1%)
  • Electrocutions (8.6%)
  • Caught-in/between (2.5%)

The assignment is to write a research paper involving one of these four construction hazard categories. You may narrow your topic down to a more specific type of accident within the major category. For example, under falls, you could focus your research on falls from ladders. When writing the paper, consider the following questions:

  1. What are the common causative factors?
  2. What does data indicate?
  3. What are the effective proven corrective measures?

The submission must be a minimum of three pages in length, not including the title page or reference page. A minimum of three scholarly reference sources must be used from the CSU Online Library. Scholarly sources include:

Note that wikipedia.com, answers.com, ask.com, about.com, and similar broad-based Internet sites are not considered scholarly sources. Use government and professional safety-related sources, such as osha.gov, niosh.gov, asse.org, nsc.org, and nfpa.org. Contact your professor if you have any questions about the validity of a reference source.
