Help Improve Quality & Safety on Construction Projects

Survey helps students enhance project performance through improving quality and safety


Participate in the survey

A student at Oregon State University is working on a research study that aims to enhance project performance through improving the quality of work and worker safety on construction projects. They intend to develop a framework for forecasting and evaluating ongoing projects using a new process they termed “Energy.” Energy is the sum total of factors, conditions and resources that affect workers’ performance. This proposed method adopts a two-fold approach to improving project performance:

  1. Determine factors that affect the performance of a construction worker (worker level)
  2. Determine the impact of the identified factors on the project level (project level).

To develop this framework, they need to collect data related to factors that affect work performance of construction workers with emphasis on the owner’s representative, project manager/project engineer, superintendent, foreman, and field worker.

They are currently conducting a survey and your input would be highly appreciated.  It is estimated that it will take 20 minutes to complete the survey questionnaire that will be used to develop this framework. If you are willing to assist in the generation of data for any of the aforementioned positions, click here.

If you have questions about the study, feel free to email Dr. Gambatese at Oregon State.
