ISE members collaborate on worker-safety project

 

 

Industrial and Systems Engineering professor Dr. Xueping Li and graduate student Alison Yu Huang collaborated with the Construction Industry Research and Policy Center (CIRPC) in the Worker Safety and Health App Challenge, a national competition created by the Department of Labor.

The goal of the challenge is to make data relating to safety more accessible and user-friendly. The team’s submission is an interactive website with the theme “Working Safely Is No Accident.” The site offers a game to teach workers ages 13-24 about factors that increase workplace safety. The project also has a companion Facebook page, www.facebook.com/WorkingSafelyIsNoAccident.
