OSHA has identified four categories of hazards that account for more than 50% of all construction fatalities: Falls (36.5%) Struck by object (10.1%) Electrocutions (8.6%) Caught-in/between (2.5%) The assignment is to write a research paper involving one of these four construction hazard categories. You may narrow your topic down to a more specific type of accident within the major category. For example, under falls, you could focus your research on falls from ladders. When writing the paper, consider the following questions: 1. What are the common causative factors? 2. What does data indicate? 3. What are the effective proven corrective measures? The submission must be a minimum of three pages in length, not including the title page or reference page. A minimum of three scholarly reference sources must be used from the CSU/Waldorf Online Library. Scholarly sources include: peer-reviewed journal articles (Click here to access a webinar outlining peer-reviewed articles.) safety reference books and textbooks, and other publications by safety professionals and organizations (print or online). Note that wikipedia.com, answers.com, ask.com, about.com, and similar broad-based Internet sites are not considered scholarly sources. Use government and professional safety-related sources, such as osha.gov, niosh.gov, asse.org, nsc.org, and nfpa.org. Contact your professor if you have any questions about the validity of a reference source. APA format is required. Be sure to use in-text citations for direct quotes and paraphrased information.
