Construction Safety Management

The construction industry has a distressingly poor safety record, whether measured in absolute terms or alongside other industries. The level of construction safety in a country is influenced by factors such as variations in the labour forces, shifting economies, insurance rates, legal ramifications and the stage of technological development. Yet the problem is a world-wide one, and many of the ways of tackling it can be applied across countries. Effective tools include designing, pre-planning, training, management commitment and the development of a safety culture.

Core elements of the construction safety program are: business and employee ownership, continuous improvement by analyzing safety performance and implementing industry best practices, creating and implementing a construction safety management system, and aligning program elements with regulations and global policy.
