Pre-Task Planning (PTP) – also known as job hazard analysis, job safety analysis, morning huddle, etc. – is a process performed before each task starts to discuss the steps of work, hazards, and available controls. To help contractors design, implement, assess, and continuously improve their PTP process, CPWR has developed a comprehensive PTP package. It contains several applied tools — including checklists, templates, and practical examples — to help you through the process. To access these resources, visit CPWR’s Pre-Task Planning (PTP) Guidelines and Resources for Construction webpage.

New Resources to Improve Pre-Task Planning
CPWR Data Bulletin: Labor Force Characteristics in Construction and All Industries
Data on labor force characteristics provide economic indicators of labor market performance, as well as information on those in and out of the labor force, which can provide information used for recruitment and retainment efforts. This issue of the CPWR Data Bulletin examines the labor force in construction compared to all industries, as well as the demographics of workers by employment status.
CPWR’s Data Center has also launched a Retirement Plans in Construction dashboard that highlights wage-and-salary construction workers participation in pension plans by state, occupation, and industry, as well as participation in retirement saving plans by plan type.
New Checklists For Helping Prevent Heat Illness
To support those exposed to high temperatures during construction work, CPWR recently published two new checklists. The Overall Heat Illness Prevention Program Checklist helps employers create or improve their indoor and outdoor heat-related illness plans and the Daily Heat Illness Prevention Checklist helps management identify hazards and implement solutions on the job site. The checklists join CPWR’s extensive collection of material to improve safety for people working in the heat.
CPWR Data Bulletin: Employment Costs in Construction
This issue of the CPWR Data Bulletin examines employment costs in the construction industry through four pay measures: Employment Cost Index, compensation costs, average hourly earnings, and average hourly wage.
In addition, three corresponding data dashboards – Construction Workers’ Income and Benefits, Construction Employment Trends, and Construction Employment Projections – have all been updated to include the latest data.
