New Construction Fatality Map Dashboard
CPWR launched the Construction Fatality Maps in 2011 to support the National Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction. Now our Data Center has developed the Construction Fatality Map Dashboard, which combines data from OSHA fatality investigations and online media sources to raise awareness of construction hazards and the need for improved safety. It allows computer or mobile device users to search construction fatalities by four filters: Year, Event Type (major categories such as falls), State, and Date.
Latest Data Bulletin Examines Struck-by Injuries
The April issue of CPWR’s Data Bulletin reports on struck-by incidents, the largest contributor to non-fatal injuries in construction and a leading cause of fatal injuries.
COVID-19 Vaccine Resources for Construction
CPWR has collaborated with universities and the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health to develop resources — including an FAQ and infographics — to help the construction industry understand the science and benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Hear from the Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) about the latest information and research on COVID-19 transmission, testing, variants of the virus, vaccination and vaccine programs, and other return-to-work issues. As we begin to return to “normal”, this update will provide guidance for how to best continue keeping workers and their families safe.
