OSHA Offers Free Construction Safety Training Videos

There are more than 800 construction worker fatalities each year and nearly 137,000 construction workers are seriously injured while on the job.

OSHA offers a series of videos that show how quickly construction workers can be injured or killed on the job. These videos are intended to assist those in the construction  industry to identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards.

Most of the videos are 2 to 4 minutes long, presented in clear, easily accessible vocabulary, and show common construction work site activities.

The videos may be used for employer and worker training. Each video presents:
  • A work site incident based on true stories that resulted in worker injury or death.
  • Corrective actions for preventing these types of accidents.
The safety topics covered are:

Falls in Construction
  • Floor Openings
  • Skylights
  • Fixed Scaffolds
  • Bridge Decking
  • Reroofing
  • Leading Edge Work

Sprains and Strains in Construction

  • Pulling Cables
