Understanding job site exposures to common hazards such as contaminants and risky body positions is vital for keeping construction workers safe.
This dashboard examines occupational exposures commonly found in the construction industry. Exposure data are from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration, which includes information on work conditions and hazards for approximately 1,000 occupations. Employment estimates come from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) program.
Dashboard instructions and information on filters, charts, and definitions are included in the information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.
You can download the data as a spreadsheet. Each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.
The dashboard will be updated annually when new data are available, with the next update scheduled for Spring 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
