CPWR awards Dr. Hyun Woo “Chris” Lee grant on solar panel safety

solarsafetyCPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training – Small study program, has awarded CM Assistant Professor, Dr. Hyun Woo “Chris” Lee a 1-year grant.

The objective of the study is to develop knowledge and resources that support the application of Prevention through Design (PtD) in solar design and installation and lead to improved safety performance of construction workers. By doing so, the research aims to provide evidence that PtD can effectively contribute to preventing safety hazards and risks during solar installation by devising proactive measures in the design process while minimally affecting the intended solar production level or the efficiency of field operations.
