r2p Partnerships

Masonry r2p Partnership

In November 2010, the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC), the International Council of Employers (ICE), and the International Masonry Institute (IMI), established the Masonry r2p Partnership in collaboration with CPWR. Together, these partners have access to a national network of organizations and individuals involved in all aspects of the industry.  The goal of this Partnership is to increase awareness and use of tools, materials, and work practices that have been found to reduce workers’ risk for injury or illness in the masonry industry.

While supporting the Partnership’s goal, CPWR has been furthering the construction industry’s understanding of the role partnerships play in advancing research to practice (r2p). Lessons learned are documented in the Construction Research to Practice (r2p) Partnership Toolkit.
