Abstract
Rapid construction projects and processes will become increasingly important as customers demand better project management performance and globally, as countries plan for and respond to the aftermath of natural and/or unnatural disasters. For use in expedited projects (as well as traditional projects), a rapid universal safety and health system (RUSH) was designed, developed, deployed, and evaluated. For its inaugural application, the RUSH was applied to a construction project. Results from an initial application included a safe build in approximately without recordable incidents. More importantly, lessons were learned by a multidisciplinary team of researchers who observed safety for the life of the project. Lessons learned and recommendations for future research are provided as a result of this experience.
