Social marketing is a promising approach for moving research to practice (r2p) in construction. . This Construction Safety and Health Social Marketing Toolkit is designed to build construction safety and health researchers’ and industry stakeholders’ capacity to: develop a social marketing plan; identify and work with appropriate partners to complement their skill set; and manage the process of developing and implementing a social marketing program.
All content shared by Network members can be found in this searchable database. We invite you to explore and share the content with your own network.
This site is one more tool to help you effectively connect with others interested in improving safety and health in the industry. Other tools, including this Partnership Toolkit, which contains resources to help establish and strengthen partnerships focused on advancing safety and health in the construction industry, are available in our r2p tool library.
This primer provides information to help safety and health researchers decide if Social Network Analysis (SNA) is the right evaluation approach for their research project and to introduce key steps for conducting their own SNA. Throughout the primer, information from the Falls Campaign is used to ground the content in real-life examples.
CPWR has just launched a new online data series to improve our ongoing efforts to share timely, relevant and data-driven information with the construction industry. The Data Bulletin replaces the Quarterly Data Report and will be published six rather than four times per year.
Manually lifting and moving heavy materials on job sites can result in soft tissue injuries. These types of injuries cost business billions of dollars and are a leading cause of disabling injuries in the construction industry. Best Built Plans (bestbuiltplans.org) provides contractors and workers with practical tools to plan for safe materials handling including training materials for workers and contractors. (See article “It’s Time to Stop the Pain: Preventing Overexertion Injuries,” CFMA Building Profits – The Magazine for Construction Financial Professionals).
The original Best Built Plans program lead to the development of – and is included in – a new, more comprehensive ergonomics training program for workers. Learn more at https://www.cpwr.com/research/research-practice-library/construction-ergonomic-research-solutions.
