OSHA’s Denver Colorado office will conduct random, weekend safety inspections to protect construction workers from falls and trench collapses.
Over the last few years, six workers in Colorado have suffered fatal falls, and nearly a dozen excavation collapses and trenching incidents have led to the deaths.
In an effort to make sites safer, this initiative will help address and identify construction-related hazards. “This is a proactive effort to identify hazardous worksites and to ensure workers end their shifts safely.” said OSHA Acting Regional Administra-tor Nancy Hauter in Denver.
