New Materials to Support Women, Nonbinary, and Transgender Construction Workers
Because women, nonbinary, and transgender workers in construction face specific challenges, we continue to develop resources to respond. The newest are the Physicians’ Alert: Pregnant Construction Worker Safety and Health to support workers’ ability to remain on the job safely for as long as they wish during pregnancy and return safely after giving birth, and a collection of Work-Related Task Lists by Construction Occupation, which workers can share with their doctors so they understand what is involved in the job and recommend appropriate care, accommodations, or other considerations. These new offerings join existing materials such as our webpage of resources on women in the trades, a list of commercially available extended-size PPE, and a recent Data Bulletin and Data Dashboard on women in construction.
Two Data Dashboards Updated
Two of CPWR's more than 30 interactive Data Dashboards have been updated. Both the Severe Injuries Dashboard, which compiles information on injuries that result in amputations, in-patient hospitalizations, or losses of eyes, and the Fatality Map Dashboard now have data through June 2023.
