Describes research into the current provision of health and safety teaching in construction related undergraduate courses covering architecture, building, engineering and surveying. Made against a growing awareness of the importance of health and safety as part of project risk management, and the need for graduates to be aware of this philosophy as a key influence in the drive to reduce ill health and accidents. This study shows that the current provision of health and safety teaching is generally poor. However it also demonstrates that academia cannot be expected to deliver alone on this issue; inconsistency between elements of the industry and a lack of guidance and clarity hinder the efforts that are being made. The study sets out a clear set of recommendations relating to government, accreditation bodies, industry, and academia itself.
