New Best Built Plans Resources

CPWR’s Best Built Plans program (BBP) is designed to reduce the risks for manual materials handling (sprain and strain) injuries by providing contractors with resources to plan for safe manual materials handling at each project stage and to use on the job to raise awareness and reinforce safe practices.  Thanks to a small group of contractors who piloted the program, new resources have been added, including an app version of the planning and interactive training resources, a Spanish version of the planning tool, and a video on how to use the program. Also, with help from the United Association and the Mechanical Contractors Association of America and input from industry trainers, a new training program for workers and contractors that builds on BBP resources has been piloted and will be released soon.
