CDT Ensures Safer Construction Worksites that Improve Public Safety
A survey conducted by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) revealed that the construction industry has some of the highest rates of alcohol and drug abuse. Among full-time construction workers between the ages of 18 and 49, more than 12 percent reported illicit drug use during the past 30 days, almost 21 percent reported illicit drug use during the past year, and approximately 13 percent admitted to heavy alcohol use.1
These workers are not only dangerous to themselves and their coworkers, but also to the general public. Poor quality construction work can lead to potentially dangerous structures; including private homes, schools, corporate buildings, shopping centers, national landmarks….the list goes on and on.
