Reports from CPWR’s Site Safety Assessment of the City Center and Cosmopolitan Construction Sites, Las Vegas (Completed – 2004-2009)
Reports from CPWR’s Site Safety Assessment of the City Center and Cosmopolitan Construction Sites, Las Vegas
CPWR conducted a site safety assessment of two construction sites in Las Vegas and coordinated OSHA 10-hour training for workers on those sites as a result of an agreement between the Perini Building Company and the Southern Nevada Building and Construction Trades Council. The agreement, forged on June 3, 2008, put an end to a day-long walk-out of construction workers concerned about safety issues on the site where six workers were killed in an 18-month period.
Below are links to the final reports with the time of the report’s release to Perini and the Southern Nevada BCTC. All reports offer conclusions and recommendations for improvement.
The Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO, the Greater New York Building Trades Council, and the International Union of Operating Engineers joined in the release of the report.
The first report, delivered in September of 2008, provided results from a Fall Hazard Identification and Control Audit of two randomly selected buildings:
The second report, delivered November 2008, gave an evaluation of the safety orientation training program, feedback on the current Perini safety program and materials, observations based on accompanying Perini safety staff on site, and face-to-face interviews conducted by CPWR with workers.
The final report, delivered January 2009, gave results from the safety climate survey of workers, foremen, superintendents, and top management executives. This report combined information of a report delivered October 2008 on the preliminary results of the safety climate survey.
An executive summary provides an overview to the reports.
