The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has launched a regional campaign to raise awareness about the four leading safety hazards in the construction industry. The “Focus Four Hazards” campaign will serve employers and employees in Pennsylvania, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.  From March through June, the campaign will educate employers to recognize, evaluate, and control electrical, struck-by, fall, and caught-in/between hazards.  In Pennsylvania, OSHA’s Harrisburg Area Office will work with employers in several areas including Mifflin, Huntingdon, Juniata, Perry, Centre, and Franklin counties.  Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees.
