Abstract
Growth in the construction industry underscores the need for qualified individuals-professionals with specific knowledge of construction safety issues. However, according to the authors, academic safety programs have been slow to respond to this need. The authors discuss the implementation of a new construction program into the safety curriculum at West Virginia University. The factors that prompted development of the course are reviewed, as are content topics and strategic partnerships with various university groups.
