RR275 - Identification and management of risk in undergraduate construction courses

This report describes the final stage of research into the current provision of health and safety teaching in construction related undergraduate courses (covering architecture, building, engineering and surveying). It supplements Contract Research Report 392/2001. The study is made against a growing awareness of the importance of health and safety as part of project, and corporate social 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. The aim of this final stage was to ascertain whether the recommendations made in 392/2001, and allocated to academia, had been implemented.

The Research Report Series are produced in Adobe Acrobat. The use of the latest version of the software is recommended which is available at the Adobe website via the link on this page.
