Abstract

CII has collected annual corporate safety performance data from its member organizations since 1990 as part of its long-term commitment to improving safety in the construction industry. Starting in 2018, the CII and CURT jointly collect safety data through the CII/CURT Safety Portal. While the CII/CURT Safety Portal combines data from CII members and non-members, this document summarizes safety rates experienced by CII members only.
 

Survey Instrument

The CII/CURT safety survey gathers data by industry sector, location, and employee type. The main data entry fields include:
  • Total Work Hours
  • Total Recordable Incident Cases
  • Days Away and Restricted or Transferred (DART) Cases
  • Days Away (DA) Cases
  • Total Number of Days Associated with Days Away (DA) Cases
  • Total Number of Days Associated with Job Restriction or Transfer (RT) Cases
  • Number of Fatalities

In addition, the survey includes questions regarding near misses, first aid cases, and fatalities. All the rates presented in this report follow OSHA's definitions, which are available in the OSHA 300 form.
 

COVID-19 and OSHA Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for Pandemic

OSHA published its Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19, which contains recommendations as well as descriptions of mandatory safety and health standards for workplace preparation under the impact of COVID-19. A number of frequently asked questions relative to COVID-19 (COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions) are also listed by OSHA for quick reference.

Impacts of COVID-19 will be seen in next year’s report (2020 data) but this information is included here due to the current nature of the risk.
