Case Study: In 2013, there were two separate cases of structural collapse due to improper column anchoring. In both cases, the anchor bolts were not installed properly by the concrete contractor and were later cut off and repositioned. While it is possible to perform this kind of change safely, neither of the contractors in either case consulted the structural engineer on the project for advice or approval, and in both cases the modifications were done improperly. In these cases, the unapproved changes to the anchor bolts caused 50-foot and 60-foot steel columns to come crashing down suddenly and unexpectedly, which would have crushed anyone who had been in the way. Fortunately, no one was injured in either case, but the potential for injury and death was present and avoidable.

Key Takeaway: Columns bear the weight of the entire operation. Structural engineers are trained to design steel erections safely from the ground up, and making unauthorized modifications to their engineering plans can jeopardize the safety of everyone involved.

Click to Learn More How often is retraining or recertification required?

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Construction Steel Erection. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer -

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.
