A Guide to the Big Four Safety Hazards in Industry

D. Allen Hughes, PE

There are four main hazards associated with industrial work: fall, electrical, struck-by, and caught-in. These hazards are known to cause injuries and fatalities in the workplace. It is important to train managers and employees on how to identify, avoid, and remedy these risks in the workplace. When employees are trained for these hazards, the potential for injuries, fatalities and the liability to the employer are all decreased.

Through the completion of this course, an employer or manager can determine what actions are necessary to reduce the risk of employee exposure to these hazards. This course provides the most important recommendations and how to apply them to the situation at hand. With the proper application of these procedures, as well as consistent enforcement practices, it is likely that employees will know what to do to avoid falling, electrical, struck-by, and caught-in hazards.

This guide is intended to be consistent with all existing OSHA standards therefore, if an area of this course is considered by the reader to be inconsistent with OSHA, then the OSHA standard should be followed.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
