New! COVID-19 Exposure Control Planning Tool
Safety Climate Assessment Tool
Safety Climate Assessment Tool (S-CAT). The S-CAT is a reliable and valid survey instrument (Probst and Goldenhar, 2019) that companies can use to assess their Safety Climate Maturity across eight leading safety climate indicators. The S-CAT (also available in Spanish) can be completed on-line at www.safetyclimateassessment.org.
Safety Climate Assessment Tool for Small Contractors (S-CAT SC). The S-CATsc is a needs assessment and provides a snapshot of which activities the company is currently doing or could do in the future to improve safety climate across eight leading safety climate indicators. It was designed particularly for smaller contracting companies just beginning their safety climate improvement journey. It can be completed here in English or Spanish.
Summary Report: Research to Practice (r2p) In Construction: Science, Strategies & Partnerships to Advance Safety & Health: June 2015 – June 2019
The annual r2p Seminar and Partnership Workshop (meeting), initiated in 2015 and held in conjunction with the annual meeting of CPWR’s Research Consortium, is an integral part of our Research to Practice system. This meeting provides a platform for researchers to report on their projects’ progress and findings and to receive feedback from industry stakeholders (e.g., contractors, trade associations, unions, trainers, manufacturers and insurers) and other researchers. It also creates an opportunity for an ongoing dialogue between researchers and industry stakeholders on how best to: 1) distill scientific knowledge into understandable and actionable information; 2) use different partnership structures and targeted approaches to make end users aware of research results; 3) ensure the use of research findings and interventions; and 4) plan for and evaluate these activities.
A broad cross-section of industry stakeholders and researchers participated in the meetings held between 2015 and 2019 (see Appendix 1). The discussions, findings, and evaluations from each meeting were used to influence future themes and topics, and led to information and resources for researchers and industry stakeholders to use in support of current and future research projects and outreach activities.
Between meetings, pilot projects were undertaken to test promising strategies and take advantage of opportunities to partner on r2p initiatives. This document includes a summary of meeting discussions, information from related r2p initiatives, and examples of resulting r2p pilot projects and new resources.
This newly revised Roadmap tool is designed to help researchers plan for how their research findings and results will ultimately be used to reduce occupational injuries and illnesses in the construction industry. Researchers are encouraged to begin using this planning tool at the start of their research project.
This report summarizes:
- the findings from a review of relevant papers and research on Delphi Panels and their potential use in assessing whether construction safety and health research findings are being used by target audiences of workers and contractors to reduce injuries and illnesses (research to practice); and
- what was learned about the parameters of panel selection, composition, and analysis.
