Washington DC OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses
According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Washington DC was in the construction and extraction occupations (Source). Among these, construction laborers, first-line supervisors, and managers of construction trades and extraction workers, roofers, carpenters, and electricians experienced the most fatalities.
For more information backovers, OSHA has a webpage that provides information about the top four hazards of the construction industry that lead to fatalities: falls, struck-by and caught-in/between, electrocal incidents, and trenching and escavation; 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.
