Company ABC, a large utility contractor based out of central Wisconsin, was seeking innovative ways to control barriers that hinder successful workforce development training due to the increased rates of safety related incidents. These barriers were causing delays in construction schedules, re-work, injuries, and even fatalities. This research study investigated the primary causes of barriers in workforce development training and discovered solutions via two focus groups to assist in minimizing the effects of those barriers to ultimately lower the incident rate. An analysis of the focus group results was used to make recommendations to minimize and reduce the researched barriers.
