CPWR teamed up with Dodge Data & Analytics to survey American construction contractors about key trends and innovations in construction safety and health. Safety Management in the Construction Industry 2017 is the third in a series of studies that demonstrate the financial and project benefits that contractors gain from their safety investments. It also shows the impact that new technologies, such as building information modeling (BIM), drones, and wearable devices, have on improving safety. Finally, it suggests that active consideration of safety during building design, known formally as Prevention through Design (PtD), is still an emerging practice – but one well-positioned for wider acceptance in the design and construction industry.

CPWR and Dodge also recently co-hosted a webinar based on the report. Donna Laquidara-Carr, Director of Industry Insights Research at Dodge, presented on the report’s key findings on Tuesday, January 30th at 2pm EST. A recording of that event is available here.
