New SmartMarket Report Focuses on Emerging Trends to Improve Safety

SMACNA was a research partner on a recent SmartMarket Report entitled Safety Management in the Construction Industry 2017. Published by Dodge Data and Analytics, this new report builds on two other reports examining the positive impacts that today’s policies, procedures, and technology have on safety cultures in the construction industry. 

Based on two online surveys of 334 contractors and 108 architects, the 2017 report includes information on safety cultures, prevention through design, building information modeling, mobile devices, virtual reality and more. The case studies, graphs, and tables in the report present a wealth of information to help construction companies understand the pros and cons of how safety interacts with the processes and technology used throughout the construction industry today.

For further information on the report, contact Mike McCullion, SMACNA director of safety and market sectors, at 703-995-4027 or
