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, preplanning, training, management commitment and the development of a safety culture. The introduction and operation of effective safety management systems represents a viable way forwards, but these systems are all too rarely implemented. How can this be done? Should we go back to prescriptive legislation? This book considers these questions by drawing together leading-edge research papers from the proceedings of an international conference conducted by a commission (W099) on Safety and Health on Construction Sites of CIB, the international council of building research organisations.

Although the construction and engineering sector makes important contributions to the economic, social, and environmental objectives of a nation, it has a notorious reputation for being an unsafe industry in which to work. Despite the fact that safety performance in the industry has improved, injuries and fatalities still occur frequently. To address this, the industry needs to evolve further by integrating safety into all decision making processes. Strategic Safety Management in Construction and Engineering takes a broad view of safety from a strategic decision making and management perspective with a particular focus on the need to balance and integrate ‘science’ and ‘art’ when implementing safety management. The principles covered here include the economics of safety, safety climate and culture, skills for safety, safety training and learning, safety in design, risk management, building information modelling, and safety research methods and the research-practice nexus. They are integrated into a strategic safety management framework which comprises strategy development, implementation, and evaluation. Practical techniques are included to apply the principles in the context of the construction and engineering industry and projects. Case studies are also provided to demonstrate the localised context and applications of the principles and techniques in practice.

Reese covers every facet of safety and health management with real-world examples and strategies. He provides succinct yet thorough coverage of important and timely concepts and practices commonly used in the safety field. More than just a text filled with information, this is a true how-to book. The author discusses how to write a program, how to identify hazards, and how to involve workers and attain their cooperation. He goes on to explain how to use identification and intervention tools such as hazard hunt, audits, and job hazard analysis. He provides a listing of potential resources, encourages developing a working relationship with OSHA, and how to go about determining which regulations are applicable to you or your employer’s workplace and how to find assistance and sources that will help you guide your organization to compliance with OSHA regulations. The book incorporates the development of written programs, the identification of hazards, the mitigation of hazards by use of common safety and health tools, and the development of a safe workforce through communication, motivational techniques, involvement, and training. Covering a wide array of occupational health and safety topics in one cohesive single-authored volume, Occupational Health and Safety Management: A Practical Approach is a blueprint for developing and managing a safety and health initiative tailored exactly to your company’s needs.
