The r2p Working group

The r2p Working group

The r2p Working Group facilitates communication and action by researchers and decision makers on critical safety and health issues facing the construction industry.

Who we are: The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR); the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH); and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Our Mission is to work collaboratively to:

  1. Promote a closer relationship between research and practice.
    • Create better two-way communication between researchers and decision makers (including owners, contractors, manufacturers, safety professionals, labor, regulators, government agencies and others).
    • Get vital information, interventions and technologies to the construction worker “in the trench” or “on the steel”.
    • Persuade contractors and workers to adopt evidence-based interventions and recommendations.
  2. Learn about and improve the r2p process.
    • Document and evaluate r2p efforts carried out jointly and within each organization.
    • Compare lessons learned and compile useful tools.

Our joint dissemination efforts to date include:
