Kathi Dobson and Schelle Wood were asked by OSHA to provide data regarding the level of harassment in the construction industry. Linked below is a survey via Survey Monkey that will provide OSHA and our association with anonymous information regarding member experiences related to bullying, sexual harassment and sexism/gender discrimination in the construction workplace.

The survey (link below) should take approximately 10 minutes. If you wish to provide additional information regarding your experiences, we estimate it may increase the survey time to 45 minutes.

The 10 question survey will be open from March 30 – May 31, 2017 and the results will be provided to OSHA and available to NAWIC members at the 2017 Annual Meeting and Educational Conference. The survey and related data will support our Alliance goals.

Additionally, if a statistically significant number of women participate, we will issue a proposal for presentation to one (or more) national association’s safety & health conference in an effort to share the information with the construction community.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Kathi (kdobson@alberici.com) or Schelle (schelle@dolphinsheetmetal.com).


Through the Alliance, OSHA and NAWIC will work together to provide NAWIC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to ergonomic hazards, sanitation hazards, and issues related to personal protective equipment selection in the industry, with the focus on a subset of construction workers with unique needs.
