Abstract
Rapid construction projects and processes will become increasingly important in 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 and deployed. For its inaugural application, the RUSH was applied to a 106 hour residential construction project. This paper presents the formative evaluation based upon on-site data collection and a survey instruments administered just after the project to trades, managers and safety team members. No major incidents were recorded. The results will be discussed in terms of the observational and survey results
