CPWR Safety Videos

The Center for Construction Research and Training is a nonprofit institution working under a cooperative agreement with NIOSH.  CPWR’s new ultra-short videos bring a NIOSH FACE/Fatality report to life.  Each of the three videos gives the task, stats on the hazard, conditions and decisions on the actual construction site that led to the worker’s death.  Plus, these videos gives a NIOSH investigator’s recommendations to help prevent a similar tragedy.  Each video posted on YouTube has an accompanying Toolbox Talk, poster and one-page Hazard Alert (handout), plus a link to the original FACE.
