Scaffolds are a major source of injuries and fatalities. Of the 510,500 injuries and illnesses that occur in the construction industry annually, 9,750 are related to scaffolds. In addition, of the estimated 924 occupational fatalities occurring annually, at least 79 are associated with work on scaffolds. Most of these accidents can be prevented if proper safety precautions are initiated. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employer. The OSHA Standards governing Scaffolding establish uniform requirements to ensure that the hazards existing in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, safety procedures implemented, and that the proper hazard information is transmitted to all affected workers.
Approximately 300,000 disabling injuries occur in work-related falls each year. 85% of workers surviving falls lose time from their jobs. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employer. The OSHA Safety Standards establish uniform requirements to make sure that the hazards elevated falls in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, and that this hazard information is transmitted to all affected workers.
