2. Lost time by fellow employees.

3. Loss of efficiency due to break-up of crew.

4. Lost time by supervisor.

enforcement programs
Enforcement Programs
  • Enhanced Enforcement Program (EEP) announced more than two years ago. This program allows us to zero in on employers with the gravest violations who have failed to take their safety and health responsibilities seriously. In FY 2005, OSHA conducted more than 500 EEP inspections
    • 50 percent of those were in construction
    • 87 percent involved a fatality

focus on hispanic
Focus on Hispanic
  • While we are concerned about the relatively high levels of Hispanic worker fatalities, we remain convinced that OSHA's outreach programs are succeeding.
  • The higher levels of Hispanic/Latino worker fatalities was focused in the same categories as all other fatalities-transportation incidents, contact with objects and equipment, and falls.

focus on hispanics
Focus on Hispanics
  • Workplace safety for Spanish-speaking workers remains a priority within OSHA, and we are committed to identify ways to improve their workplace safety.
  • Our approach includes numerous Hispanic outreach compliance tools, programs and training resources for employers and Spanish-speaking workers, including:

Focus on Hispanics
  • OSHA's Web site featuring a new Hispanic Employers and Workers Compliance Assistance page targeted to English-speaking and bilingual Hispanic employers and workers;
  • A Spanish-language version of essential information available on OSHA's Web site, along with numerous electronic compliance assistance tools and Spanish-language publications; and

Focus on Hispanics

OSHA's national helpline (800-321-OSHA) with Spanish-speaking operators, and Hispanic/English-as-Second-Language coordinators in each of OSHA's ten regions to assist Hispanic workers with outreach, education and training. In addition, each of the Area Offices within the Chicago Region will have an Hispanic/Latino coordinator. In many of our area offices, we have Spanish speaking employees and we have ready access to translators of many other languages, also.

improperly used quick couplers linked to accidents
Improperly Used Quick Couplers Linked to Accidents

Since 1/98, there have been 16 incidents investigated by OSHA in which workers were struck by excavator buckets that fell from their quick coupling devices; 9 of these resulted in fatalities.

Note: Related bucket accidents investigated by Madison, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Cleveland and Columbus Area Offices

improperly used quick couplers linked to accidents40
Improperly Used Quick Couplers Linked to Accidents

Purpose of SHIB:

Alert employers and employees that excavator attachments may inadvertentlyrelease from quick coupling devices if improperly used.

what are quick couplers and why are they popular
What Are Quick Couplers and Why Are They Popular?
  • After market devices that enable contractors to make quick attachment changes on hydraulic excavators
  • With bucket removed the lifting capacity of the machine is increased
  • Contractors are able to do the majority of their work with a large bucket then switch to a smaller bucket for fine-tuning and tight areas
  • Quick couplers allow the operator to change from using a bucket to a ram attachment and back to a bucket easily
why do the buckets release
Why Do the Buckets Release?

1. Quick coupler not fully engaged & locked.

2. Wrong size, or worn bucket pin.

3. Worn, or missing, quick coupler springs.

4. Quick couplers not properlymaintained.
