Webinar: Designing for construction safety

It’s much more effective to design safety into a construction process than it is to try to manage safety after the fact. Want to learn how the hazards construction workers face daily can be addressed in the design of a construction project that significantly reduces those risks?

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Safety Council (NSC) will host a webinar titled, Designing for Construction Safety: Preventing Injuries from Concept to Completion on November 27, 2007. Registration is $75 for NSC members and $125 for non-members. The webinar will be moderated by Dr. Richard Rinehart, Senior Service Fellow in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s Education and Information Division.

Designing for construction safety was identified at the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) meeting in September 2007 as one of NIOSH’s top ten research priorities.
