Strategic Safety Management in Construction and Engineering

4.11 - 1251 ratings - Source



The construction industry has a reputation for being a dangerous place to work. The truth is that in many countries the industry has made very significant improvements in safety performance through the application of systems, structures and modern technology. Continued focus on these systems, while essential, will not produce another leap in improved safety performance, because human error is an inevitable aspect of everyday life. The labour-intensive characteristics of the construction industry make human error a significant factor in safety performance. To address this, major construction organisations have recognised the need to integrate safety into all decision making. Strategic Safety Management in Construction and Engineering takes a broad view of safety from a strategic decision making and management perspective, including safety strategy design, development, implementation, and evaluation, and addresses the importance of balancing the different components of safety management, including a strong people focussed approach, to achieve an effective safety programme. The localised on-site context for strategy implementation, monitoring, and evaluation is emphasised, while case studies are provided to demonstrate concepts, principles and techniques in practice.Safety in Design, Risk Management and BIM 179 Safe Work Australia (2012c). ...
