OSHA has identified four categories of hazards that account

| March 29, 2017

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

 Falls—(36.5%)

 Struck by object—84 (10.1%)

 Electrocutions—71 (8.6%)

 Caught-in/between—21 (2.5%)

The assignment is to write a research paper involving one of these four construction hazard categories. You may narrowyour 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?

Remember that a significant aspect of any research paper is the summary analysis by the writer of that research (in this case, you). 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

: peer-reviewed journal articles (Click here to access a webinar outlining peer-reviewed articles.)

 safety reference books and textbooks, and

 other publications by safety professionals and organizations (print or online).

DO NOT USE !!!!! 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. APA format is required. Be sure to use in text citations for direct quotes and paraphrased information.
