Caught-In Statistics Each year, workers die from caught-in accidents. On Average: Total deaths from caught-in cases: 388 Caught-in deaths in construction: 95 Approximately 8% of deaths in construction are from caught-in accidents. Approximately 7% of all

occupational deaths are from caught-in accidents. PPT-126-01 7 Hazard Recognition Caught-in hazards occur when a worker is caught inside of or in between

different objects. PPT-126-01 8 Cranes & Heavy Equipment Caught-in hazards are often created when working around heavy

equipment. PPT-126-01 9 Cranes & Heavy Equipment Never place yourself between a piece of heavy equipment and

an immovable object. PPT-126-01 10 Cranes & Heavy Equipment Never work in the swing radius of rotating

equipment. PPT-126-01 11 Cranes & Heavy Equipment Always work at a safe distance from equipment.

PPT-126-01 12 Tools and Equipment Caught-in hazards exist when workers remove or disable guards on

tools or equipment. PPT-126-01 13 Tools and Equipment Never place your hands or body near

moving parts. PPT-126-01 14 Tools and Equipment Gloves, long sleeve shirts, jewelry, or loose fitting

clothing can be hazardous if caught in moving parts. PPT-126-01 15 Tools and Equipment Never use equipment

that is missing guards or other protective devices. PPT-126-01 16 Material Handling Use caution when handling

materials PPT-126-01 17 Material Handling Be careful when stacking and storing materials.

PPT-126-01 18 Material Handling Do not place yourself between materials and an immovable structure.

PPT-126-01 19 Trenches & Excavations Workers inside of an excavation must be protected from a cave-in PPT-126-01 20

Trenches & Excavations Workers are exposed to a potential cave-in when there are unprotected sides PPT-126-01 21 Trenches & Excavations

Workers could be caught-in between the sides of an excavation and pipes or other objects inside the excavation PPT-126-01 22

Trenches & Excavations Never work inside an excavation where water is accumulating. PPT-126-01 23

Accident Prevention A willing, positive attitude towards safety will help make a safer work environment. PPT-126-01

24 Accident Prevention Plan your work and look for potential hazards. Each task will have different hazards. PPT-126-01

25 Guarding Moving Parts Always use equipment with all of the guards properly adjusted and in position. PPT-126-01 26 Guarding Moving Parts Always use equipment with rotating or moving

parts that are properly guarded. PPT-126-01 27 Guarding Moving Parts Always use tools or equipment that is properly guarded. PPT-126-01 28

Guarding Moving Parts Some equipment may need to be guarded by distance. PPT-126-01 29 Barricades When working near equipment, such as

cranes, use a barricade to identify the unsafe area. PPT-126-01 30 Barricades Barricades must be maintained PPT-126-01

31 Proper Material Handling Properly handle and guide materials that are being flown overhead. PPT-126-01 32

Proper Material Handling Be safe when moving materials. PPT-126-01 33 Protective Systems Before performing any excavation work, all employees must be trained. When excavation work is taking place, a competent

person must be present. Anytime an excavations depth is greater than 5 feet and less than 20 feet, a competent person must select the protective system to put in place. Excavations over 20 feet require the design of a protective system by a licensed professional engineer. PPT-126-01

34 Shielding/Trench Boxes Benching and sloping prevents the sides of a trench from collapsing onto workers inside the trench. Anytime an excavation is

greater than 5 feet in depth, protective systems must be in place. PPT-126-01 35 Shielding/Trench Boxes A safe way to enter and exit excavations

must be provided any time there is a trench. PPT-126-01 36 Shielding/Trench Boxes Regardless of the type of protection used, a

safe way to enter the trench is required. PPT-126-01 37 Caught-In Prevention Protecting against Caught-In or between hazards: Use machinery that is properly guarded Use other methods to ensure that machinery is sufficiently supported, secured or otherwise made safe.
