Caught-in/between accidents occur when a person is squeezed, caught, crushed, pinched or compressed between two or more objects. They are one of the four top causes of fatalities in construction work, and can result in serious injuries as well.
MARCOM’s training products on “Caught-In/Between Hazards in Construction Environments” provide the information employees need to recognize the caught-in/between hazards that are associated with construction tasks and avoid them before accidents happen.
