Both labor and management in the construction industry are concerned with the enforcement of four OSHA construction standards (regarding the use of safety belts, nets, and training) at the point of erection. This concern prompted this project which is a pilot program to evaluate the effectiveness of these standards at the point of erection in steel and precast/prestressed erection. To accomplish this objective, nine erection sites of various kinds were visited; contacts were made with unions, contractors, associations, and various OSHA officials; and data was obtained regarding fall accidents occurring at the point of erection.
