Construction Safety Research Partnership (CSRP) - NEW MEMBERS WELCOME!

 

About the CSRP

 

The Construction Safety Research Partnership (CSRP) at OSU is a community of organizations working together to investigate and develop new ideas and resources for improving occupational safety and health (OSH) in the architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) industry. The CSRP provides an opportunity for AEC industry organizations to leverage their collective knowledge and resources to collaboratively solve problems and explore new ideas for improving safety and health in the AEC industry.

The CSRP additionally aims to: (1) generate interest in safety and health from a wide spectrum of the industry; (2) promote and facilitate active involvement of AEC industry organizations to improve safety performance in the industry; and (3) support OSU as a leader in construction worker safety and health research and education.

 

CSRP Activities

 

Example CSRP partner organization activities:

  • Generate new ideas for improving OSH in the AEC industry and develop the ideas into feasible research studies
  • Provide input and advice for conducting research on OSH topics in the AEC industry
  • Transfer findings from the research studies conducted into resources for practical application in the AEC industry and for academic reference and use
  • Disseminate the research findings and outputs to the AEC industry and academia
  • Promote the CSRP to the AEC industry and academia
  • Promote and support the development and operation of a laboratory and national center for construction safety at OSU
  • Administer, evaluate, adapt, and promote the CSRP
  • Meet on a regular basis or as needed to administer the CSRP and perform needed tasks to sustain the CSRP
