Abstract
Causes and possible solutions to occupational injuries in the general building and heavy construction industries (Standard Industrial Classifications 15 and 16) were evaluated to determine safe work practices. Applicable federal and state laws, regulations, and standards were reviewed and the frequency and severity of safety problems from 1972 to 1976 were studied. Forty-two individual case reports were compared in terms of causal factors and their relationship to existing standards and code violations in cases where injury occurred. Recommendations are made in five major problem areas: education and training, protective headgear, medical screening, scaffolding, and safety nets. A matrix is provided indicating state standards which differ from federal regulations.
