Research paper on electricutions Minimum 3 pages ( not including cover page)


OSHA has identified four categories of hazards that account for more than 50% of all construction fatalities:


  • Falls—(36.5%)


  • Struck by object—84 (10.1%)


  • Electrocutions—71 (8.6%)


  • Caught-in/between—21 (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?


  1. What does data indicate?


  1. What are the effective proven corrective measures?
