CPWR is the research arm of the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO, which consists of 15 affiliate unions.


Information is available in English, Spanish, and other languages. The materials include:


•Pocket cards


•How-to manuals

•Chart books


•Research reports


•Training manuals and overheads

•Data sets



•Summaries of CD-ROMs and videos (and where to get them).


Postings will be limited, with rare exceptions, to items that apply directly to construction safety and health. eLCOSH External Link:  also provides links to related Web sites.
