There are more than 50,000 (or 2%) "struck by falling object" OSHA recordable injuries every year in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That's one injury caused by a dropped object every 10 minutes.
Workers were fatally struck by falling objects in the workplace 247 times in 2015. Struck by falling object related fatalities represent 5% of all workplace deaths or fatalities each year according to the BLS.
OSHA defines a hole as “a gap or void 2 or more inches in its least dimension in a floor, roof or other walking/working surface. Covers are required to protect employees from tripping in, stepping into or through holes. In addition, hole covers protect employees from objects falling through holes. This is referred to as “dropped object protection”. Our hole covers are suitable for 2" - 6" concrete core holes. OSHA standards say that holes must be covered during construction. Save time and money by using pre-made re-usable hole covers.
