The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released 12 educational videos about potential hazards in the construction industry.

Each year nearly 800 construction workers die on the job; one in every five workplace fatalities occurs within the construction industry. The new videos are based on real-life incidents and include detailed depictions of hazards and the safety measures that would have prevented these injuries and fatalities.

The videos cover falls in construction, workers who are struck by vehicles and heavy equipments, sprain and strain injuries, trenching and excavation hazards, and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Most of the videos are two to four minutes long and all but one are animated. According to OSHA, the videos are written in clear, accessible language, and are easy to understand, including for those with limited English proficiency. The videos can be used for worker or employer training.

Each video is available in English and Spanish for web viewing and downloading.
