Abstract This report describes research into the current provision of safety and health teaching in construction related undergraduate courses. The study was made against a growing awareness of the importance of safety and health as part of project risk management and as a means of reducing ill health and accidents. The study shows that the current provision of health and safety teaching is generally poor. It also demonstrates however that academia cannot be expected to deliver alone on this issue. Inconsistency between elements of the industry and a lack of guidance and clarity hinder the efforts that are being made. The study sets out a clear set of recommendations relating to government, accreditation bodies, industry, and academia.
