Many construction accidents are preventable. As part of their training, construction workers often receive various written material such as safety and health handouts or training brochures. However for the people in charge of training these employees it maybe difficult to choose which material is best and will get the point across to all workers.
In order to help them, the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) tested more than 100 different types of brochures, pamphlets, handouts and other written materials to find out which are the ones that can be understood by all workers. The CPWR worked with hundreds of construction apprentices and journeymen to identify bad and good practices when using written material to train construction workers on health and safety.
Tomorrow the CPWR will share the results of this research in a free webinar open to anyone who is interested in construction safety. The webinar will take place Today August 23rd at 2PM ET.
