||An approach for determining the extent of contribution of construction project features to accident causation
||July 2010, Vol.48, No.6, p.687-692. 41 ref.
||In the pursuit of occupational safety and health (OSH) improvement within the United Kingdom construction industry, several studies have been conducted to identify accident causal factors to enable the development of accident prevention measures. A critique of OSH literature also demonstrates that construction project features (CPFs) such as the nature of project, method of construction, site restriction, project duration, procurement system, design complexity, level of construction and subcontracting contribute to accident causation and that their contribution is through the introduction of proximal accident causal factors into the construction process. However, the extent of this contribution by these CPFs remains sparingly known and requires further investigation. This study puts forth an approach for determining the extent to which CPFs contribute to accident causation.
