Abstract
Safety hazards and injury rates in the general building and heavy construction industries (SIC-15 and SIC-16, respectively) ) were evaluated. Pertinent laws, regulations, and standards were reviewed, and the magnitude of the safety problem was evaluated. Individual accident/injury cases were examined to determine the cause of the accident and the extent of OSHA coverage. Most injuries were related to inadequacies in the following areas: directed supervision and training; protective headgear; medical screening; restraint (scaffolding); and safety nets. New or revised regulations and standards are recommended in these five categories.
