Abstract

This report summarizes the responses of the 2021 CII and CURT Annual Safety Surveys submitted via the Safety Benchmarking Program (SBP) including the responses by CII members, CURT members, and other non-member companies. It also presents the latest safety rates based on the reported data and provides corporate safety performance benchmarks that can be used for self-analysis. The 2021 survey was started in the first half of 2021 and collects safety data from the 2020 calendar year.

The primary purpose of this report is to document the descriptive statistics obtained from the annual safety survey. It avoids providing commentary regarding potential causes for specific safety statistics or trends. In 2017, CII and CURT combined their efforts as a way to provide a single and more robust report through an online benchmarking portal. The system now provides two ways to present results to users: The first, this report adopts the general framework of the CII Annual Safety Report. The second, the Safety Analysis tool allows users to obtain rates for specific years and to compare rates between two selected years.
 

Survey Instrument

The safety survey is administered through an online survey instrument, which gathers the data by industry sector, location, and employee type. The main data entry fields are the following:
  • Total Work Hours
  • Total Recordable Incident Cases
  • Days Away and Restricted or Transferred (DART) Cases
  • Days Away (DA) Cases
  • Total Number of Days Associated with Days Away (DA) Cases
  • Total Number of Days Associated with Job Restriction or Transfer (RT) Cases
  • Number of Fatalities

In addition, the survey includes questions regarding near misses, first aid cases, and fatalities. All safety terms used in the survey are aligned with OSHA definitions in order to allow comparisons of the survey results to the yearly safety statistics that OSHA provides on the overall U.S. construction industry.
