A useful safety tool available from OSHA in both English and Spanish is the Prevention Videos (v-Tools) showing how to avoid hazards like falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos. These animated videos show how quickly workers can be injured or killed on the job and how to identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards. Most of the videos are two to four minutes long, presented in clear, easily accessible vocabulary, and show common construction worksite activities. Visit
