You are “in the line of fire” when you are at risk of coming into contact with a force your body cannot endure. Industry standards break line of fire into three mechanisms of injury:
1. Stored Energy: Contact with stored energy. Stored energy is “pent up” energy that can be released unexpectedly.
2. Striking Hazards: Struck by or striking against an object. This includes falling objects. These are hazards that strike you, or that you strike against.
3. Crushing Hazards: Caught in, on or between an object. Crushing hazards can cause injuries that occur when body parts get caught in, on or between two objects.
The program is a complete awareness process that includes full implementation from planning to installation.
