Owners' Role in Facilitating Designing for Construction Safety

Prevention through Design (PtD) incorporates construction worker safety in the design of a building project. Researchers surveyed 103 construction owners, and interviewed 65, to assess their awareness of PtD, and to learn how owners applied PtD elements in their projects.

Building a Safety Culture: Improving Safety & Health Management in the Construction Industry

Produced by Dodge Data & Analytics in partnership with CPWR, United Rentals, and 12 other supporting and contributing organizations, this study examines the wider use of safety management practices in the construction industry and more frequently achieved benefits for contractors at the high and low ends of the safety culture spectrum.

Near Miss Information Visualization Application for BIM

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a platform that enables architects, engineers and builders to share information throughout the life cycle of a project. By integrating safety and health management elements, BIM could reduce jobsite injuries, illnesses and fatalities as well. The authors designed a BIM application that relies on nearmiss reporting data to generate a visual map of near-miss locations, offering project teams a new opportunity to mitigate hazards before an injury event occurs.

Effectiveness of OSHA Outreach Training on Construction Work-Related Injury Rates

Although safety training is one of the more frequently recommended interventions for work-related injury prevention, few studies have explored the impact of safety training on injury outcomes. The researchers examined a 9-year dynamic cohort of 17,106 union carpenters in Washington State, accounting for nearly 100 million work-hours. Using records of OSHA Outreach Training (“OSHA 10,” “OSHA 30,” “OSHA 500,” and “OSHA 502”) and workers’ compensation claims, the research team explored the relationship between OSHA Outreach Training and work-related injury rates. 

Hispanic Employment and Business Owners in the U.S. Construction Industry

This Quarterly Data Report illustrates the trends of Hispanic employment and Hispanic-owned businesses in the U.S. construction industry over the past decades, profi les demographics of Hispanic business owners and characteristics of their businesses in this industry, and highlights the differences between Hispanic and non-Hispanic workers and businesses in construction.

Safety Management in the Construction Industry

McGraw Hill recently published a report and accompanying presentation based on a research study, Safety Management in the Construction Industry: Identifying Risks and Reducing Accidents to Improve Site Productivity and Project ROI.

Noise Survey Results of Construction Safety and Health Trainers

This final report details the CPWR noise survey that was conducted to provide the OSHA-NIOSH-CPWR r2p Working Group with information on the training currently provided to construction apprentices and journey-level workers on noise controls and hearing loss prevention practices, and test the use of the formal research side of the r2p TRU-Net system from the researcher
and trainer perspectives.

TRU-Net: Connecting Training and Research to Advance Research to Practice (r2p)

Conducting safety and health research, identifying emerging hazards in need of research-based solutions, and translating research findings and outputs into information, tools, and procedures that can be implemented on construction sites cannot happen without ongoing communication between researchers and stakeholders. Safety and health trainers are critical members of this stakeholder community.
