Safety & Health Network
A cornerstone of our research to practice (r2p) initiative is creating connections between construction safety and health partnerships and collaborators to share lessons learned, pursue joint initiatives, promote the use of safer work practices with a broader audience of industry stakeholders, and identify stakeholder-driven research needs (practice to research or p2r).
This network includes:
- Industry partnerships and working groups,
- OSHA Alliances, and
- Our Trainers & Researchers United Network (TRU-Net).
SPOTLIGHT: NIOSH Noise Sound Level Meter App
Hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illnesses in the US, and is especially prevalent in the construction sector. A new, free iPhone App developed by the National Institutes for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) turns your iPhone into a sound meter. The NIOSH Sound Level Meter App enables workers and safety personnel to take real-time noise measurements on construction sites.
