New Construction Chart Book Released
The Center for Construction Research just released the fifth edition of The Construction Chart Book: The U.S. Construction Industry and Its Workers. The book presents the most complete data available on all facets of the U.S. construction industry: economic, demographic, employment/income, education/training, and safety and health issues. This fifth edition covers 55 topic pages with descriptive text on one page and charts on the opposite page.
Readers will also see more charts to illustrate the data, as well as topics not covered in previous editions, such as green construction, details of unemployment and re-employment rates of displaced construction workers, exposures to work-related hazards (working at heights, noise, MSDs and whole-body vibration) among construction trades, and details on illnesses, injuries and fatalities by trade. A new section examines OSHA inspections, violations and citations.
The Chart Book can be accessed online at www.cpwr.com at no charge, or print editions can be purchased by calling (301) 495-8500 or emailing email@example.com.
