Caught-In or Caught-Between

When the impact alone creates the injury, the event should be recorded as Struck. When the injury is created more because of crushing injuries between objects, the event should be recorded as Caught.

Caught-In or Caught-Between incidents are among the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) Big Four Construction Hazards. The requirements applicable to construction work under 29 CFR 1926 Subpart G and 29 CFR 1926 Subpart O are applicable.
