Although the “Control of Hazardous Energy: Lockout/Tagout” OSHA regulation is found in the General Industry standard set (1910.147), there may be instances in which Lockout/Tagout procedures are required either by a construction company performing work on vehicles or other equipment on a site or on their own premises or when working on electrical equipment or circuits (1926.417).
Based upon your assigned readings for this module and after conducting any supporting research you feel necessary to support your responses, answer the following questions in the form of a discussion post to this forum:
What are the advantages of having a Control of Hazardous Energy program/policy for a construction site or construction company, even though the construction standards do not specifically require it?
What types of electrical safety training should be required for contractors and subcontractors on a construction site?
What are some of the hazards that might be avoided if a Control of Hazardous Energy program/policy is in place for a construction site or construction company? Give at least two examples – be specific.
The General Industry standard has always included a confined space regulation and – recognizing that the construction standard set lacked depth and clarity on the handling of this issue (confined space) – in 2015, the construction confined space standard was set into regulation. Do you think that a version of the Control of Hazardous Energy/Lockout-Tagout” should be included in the construction standard set – why or why not?
What sources of energy do lockout/tagout requirements apply to?
What is a GCFI and how does it work?
Discuss the dangers of lack of ground fault protection on flexible cords and power tools.

For this module week, you will review toxic/hazardous waste operations and the proper response to such incidents. Choose from one of the following chemical health hazards that are known to be associated with construction activities. Research and discuss the specifics of the chemical hazard that you chose in relation to work in the construction industry.
Lead
Silica
Asbestos
Chromium (VI)
Mercury
Welding Fumes
Diesel Exhaust
Benzene
Cadmium
Coal Tar Pitch Volatiles
Formaldehyde
Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)
Your essay must include the following:
Summarize basic chemical information for the hazard you chose, how construction workers might be exposed to the hazard (either through tasks performed or commercial products used in construction activities).
Describe what OSHA construction regulations exist for the hazard and any OSHA exposure limits (PELs) for the hazard. If OSHA does not have a PEL for the hazard, are there any other agencies (i.e., NIOSH or ACGIH) that have published exposure limits or guidelines?
Are there any OSHA specific requirements for worker education/training, medical monitoring, exposure monitoring (real-time, on-site), etc.?
Discuss the health effects of exposure to the hazard (acute, chronic, systemic, local, etc.).
Identify specific protective measures that can/should be taken to prevent overexposure to this hazard. Be specific. Include a discussion of a hierarchy of controls in relation to the protective measures that can/should be taken and methods to monitor exposure to this hazard.
What hazard communication information should be provided to workers, and in what format should the information be conveyed? Is a specific program required under the OSHA construction standard for the hazard – if so, list and explain the basic components of the required program?
