Case Study: In the early morning hours of August 7, 2017, the driver of a Honda Civic lost control of his car and drove into a roadway work zone on a major interstate near Atlanta, Georgia. The vehicle hit several workers. One worker was pronounced dead at the scene, and another was evacuated by air to a hospital. He later died. An ambulance carried two other workers to a hospital, where they were treated and later released. The driver of the Honda had to be freed from his crushed vehicle and was also flown to a hospital. Authorities suspect that the driver may have been impaired, possibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol. OSHA fined the employer over $11,000 for serious workplace safety violations related to roadway work zone signage.

Key Takeaway: Accidents of this type can - and clearly do - happen. This reality requires the full commitment by any employer putting roadway workers in harm's way to promote and enforce the highest standards of safety. Not all accidents are avoidable, but roadway work zone hazards, both in the traffic space and the activity space must be identified and prevented, and workers must be protected in every way possible.

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

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification. 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.
