    Optimizing Safety Through Design


    Civil engineering and construction are high-risk industries, often exposing workers to serious hazards. In 2018, one in five worker deaths were in construction, according to OSHA. In this episode of ASCE Interchange, John Gambatese, civil and construction engineering professor at Oregon State University, and co-chair of ASCE’s Construction Safety Committee, discusses how to optimize safety and the overall success of projects.
