What’s At Stake
When you work around machinery, vehicles and anything else that moves, you could be caught in a tight spot and crushed. Every year many workers are killed or seriously injured this way.
WHAT’S THE Danger
“Caught between” is the term used to describe these injury and fatality incidents. These words refer to being caught between two moving objects or between a moving object and a stationary object.
“Caught between” hazards come in all sizes. Some are traps which can crush a hand. Others can cause fatal compression injuries to the head or chest. Always be alert to the danger of any kind of pinchpoint.
