Struck-by incidents are a leading cause of death among construction workers, and since 1992 the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the construction industry. According to OSHA, the four most common struck-by hazards are being struck-by a flying, falling, swinging, or rolling object. The NORA Construction Sector Council is undertaking a number of initiatives to increase awareness of struck-by hazards and ways to prevent them, including developing this online resource and launching a National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents.
On April 20th CPWR will be hosting its first National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-by Incidents during National Work Zone Awareness Week. Following CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), this first National Stand-Down event will be held virtually (online).
