1 Commercial Construction Industry To Stand Down Stand Up for Safety May 7, :00am-12: 00pm Challenging Times Call for Bold Action! Safety Awareness For Everyone Why? To take time out and refocus our attention on safety in order to heighten contractor awareness about creating safe work environments placing special emphasis on Focus Four Hazards CAUGHT IN-BETWEEN You and your company are invited to stand-up and show your commitment to safety by participating in our Safety Stand Down. RGV-AGC, along with OSHA s support, have agreed to take the lead in asking the industry to Stand Down projects for up to 1 hour at the same time on the same day. We firmly believe taking this action as a construction community will make a strong statement about the importance of safety to each of us. You agree to shut down all of your projects to 1hour designated for the Stand Down. Your jobsite supervisors use the Stand Down to inform, educate and train workers on understanding safe and unsafe conditions and behaviors to eliminate hazards, incidents and near-misses. Once we know you are on board, you will receive a detailed packet of information in English and Spanish to help your company prepare for the Stand Down and conduct the Stand Down. This packet answers questions about who participates, why do this in the first place, what are the benefits of a Stand Down, a sample meeting agenda for May 7 th, instructions for effectively facilitating the Stand Down, suggested topics for discussion, and a safety checklist handout. Regardless of what we have accomplished in safety to make our jobsite safer, we must do more!

2 STAND DOWN FOR SAFETY Caught In Between Purpose of Stand Down Make a strong commitment to Safety Eliminate unsafe work practices Educate and Train workers on Safe Work Practices Communicate the importance of Safety Awareness Stand Down Participation Throughout Texas we have had over 412 Member Companies participate In the Last 6 Stand Downs. The goal of the Texas Building Branch Safety Forum is to get all AGC Chapters To participate.

3 Fatality Data 2003 & Total Fatalities Caught-In-Between 10% Electrical 11% Falls 34% Struck-By 24% All Others 21% Primary Causes of Caught-In-Between Fatalities Trench/Excavation Collapse Rotating Equipment Unguarded Parts Equipment Rollovers Equipment Maintenance Poor Worker Position This worker is out of the drivers mirror view.

4 Pinned In/Under Equipment A truck driver was working between the frame and dump box of a dump truck. The dump box dropped suddenly, crushing his head. High Visibility Clothing High visibility clothing refers to reflective garments that workers should wear whenever their work place contains hazards related to low visibility or when they work near vehicles or moving equipment. Backing Equipment Have audible back-up alarms Have a spotter to direct the operator if visibility is restricted Keep adequate clearance behind the vehicle Always pay attention to backing equipment Basic Requirements Trenching and Excavation Work must be supervised by a Competent Person Protection is required at 5 feet of depth or deeper and/or if there a possibility of a cave-in Excavations must be inspected daily and/or with changes A rescue plan must be in place Trench Shields or Boxes Engineered for Type C soils Can be used with all classes of soils Shields can be moved horizontally with workers inside Workers must stay inside shields

5 Barricade Excavations Excavations must be barricaded or marked if they are not readily visible Summary of Hazards Trench/Excavation Collapse Rotating Equipment Unguarded Parts Equipment Rollovers Equipment Maintenance Plan your work by understanding the hazards and using tools like A JOB HAZARD ANALYSIS. If you have any questions ask your supervisor for help Open Ended Questions Trench Collapse What are some causes of trench collapse? What are some ways to protect people inside a trench? Has anyone ever experienced a trench collapse? Rotating Equipment/Unguarded Parts What are some potential rotating equipment hazards on this project? What kinds of equipment, machinery, or tools need to be guarded? What are some ways to protect people working around moving equipment? Equipment Rollovers What is the main form of protection against equipment rollover? What should you do in the event of a rollover? What are the potential causes of a rollover? Equipment Maintenance What types of Caught-In-Between Hazards are present when servicing equipment? What precautions should be taken during equipment maintenance to prevent an accident?

6 A B C WHAT HAZARDS ARE PRESENT IN THIS PHOTO? A. Guard Rails are missing on the balconies exposing employees to a potential fall hazard. B. Job made ladder is not secured and not placed at the 1 to 4 ratio. C. Work area is congested with working machinery, stored materials and employees. There is a great potential for a Caught-In-Between or Struck-By accident to occur in this type of working conditions.

7 A D C B IS THIS A SAFE TRENCH? WHY NOT? A. Regular Type of plywood is not rated as a protective system for Cave-In Protection. B. Employee is exposed to a potential Cave-In Hazard. Ladder should be located inside the protective system. C. Ladder is not secured and is resting against an unstable support. D. Ramp is inadequate, should be at least 18 inches wide, be able to support the imposed load, be cleated, have guard rails on both sides and be secured against movement.
