CTE Construction Programs: How Does Your Health and Safety Program Stack Up?

Construction programs at 2-years post-secondary schools and colleges play an essential role in preparing new and young workers to enter the growing construction field. However, these new workers are at greatest risk for injury on the jobsite. Researchers from U.C. Berkeley and West Virginia University have been collecting information through surveys and site visits to understand how these construction programs are doing with regards to safety training (NCWE has been a supporting partner of this research project). Your Construction Safety Program: Safe Students, Safe Workers, provides some of the key results and promising practices identified through their research. Highlights include:

  • Some schools lack important components of an effective Safety and Health Management System (SHMS)
  • Only half of all programs require either OSHA 10-hour Construction Training or OSHA 30
  • In the classroom, there is a gap in providing students with critical thinking skills in safety and health, such as job hazard analysis, understanding the “hierarchy of controls,” and self-advocacy skills
  • Industry Advisory Committees (IACs) are being leveraged well in only about half of programs

Check out the guide, and watch for an online self-assessment test to see how you and your program are doing - it’s coming soon!
