Spurred on by the pandemic, construction contractors have adopted online training tools, started using more health and wellness measures and are making better use of data to improve job-site safety, according to Dodge Data & Analytics.

During the past 12 months, 35% of contractors increased access to online training and nearly two-thirds of contractors currently use it, according to Dodge’s Safety Management in the Construction Industry 2021. Of those using online training, 75% said COVID-19 was the major reason why.
