Striking Hazard

Striking Hazards are the most frequent Line of Fire risk to workers. These are hazards that strike you, or that you strike against.

Crushing Hazard

This hazard is defined as being caught in, on, or under an object or between multiple objects. Many types of these hazards are also referred to as “pinch points”.

Stored Energy

Energy Sources are always present. Stored Energy is “pent up” energy that can be released unexpectedly such as pressure or electrical.
