Caught-Between Hazards: One of Construction’s Fatal Four
Available for MP4 video download by purchasing a corporate or single-site license.
Use this program to show your workers the various "caught-between" hazards that can be found on a construction site, and the safe work practices they must follow to protect themselves from these dangers. Caught-in or caught-between injuries occur when someone is caught, squeezed, pinched or pinned between two or more objects. If not fatal, these incidents often result in crushing injuries such as broken bones, amputations and asphyxiation. Some common examples of caught-in and caught-between hazards include being pinned between moving equipment and solid objects, becoming caught in a trench or excavation collapse, getting caught in rotating parts or moving machinery, and being caught in or trapped under collapsing structures or shifting materials.
