Connecticut OSHA Training Requirements

According to Connecticut State law, General Statutes - Section 31‐53b requires OSHA 10hr safety awareness training for construction workers and supervisors:

  • All employees who perform work on any public building project paid for in whole or part by state funding, or any of its agencies, where the total cost is over $100,000. This law went into effect in 2007.
  • Each contractor needs to furnish proof that all employees have taken the OSHA 10 hour Construction Course within 30 days of being awarded the contract. Employees who have not completed the course are subject to removal from the worksite.
  • The OSHA 10 hour Construction Course must also be retaken every 5 years.

State Reporting:

OSHA Labor Data - Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) - State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) Program - provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. This data is collected through two BLS programs:
  • SOII - BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
    The SOII provides estimates for nonfatal cases of work-related injuries and illnesses from 46 States and Territories that are recorded by employers under the Occupational safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) recordkeeping guidelines.
  • CFOI - BLS Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries
    The CFOI publishes data on fatal cases of work-related injuries for all States, Territories, and New York City.

For more information, check out the BLS State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities - Labor Programs and State data.

Connecticut OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses

According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Connecticut was in the transportation and material moving occupations (Source). The main type of these fatalities is the vehicle backover (i.e., when a vehicle backs up and strikes a worker behind the vehicle).

For more information on backovers, OSHA's Preventing Backovers webpage provides information about the hazards of backovers; solutions that can reduce the risk or frequency of these incidents; articles and resources; and references to existing regulations.

As with most states, the leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
Source: OSHA Common Statistics Summaries

Falls deaths are preventable by a safety training class that covers 29 CFR 1926.500 - Subpart M – Fall Protection and deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
