||Development of the St. Louis audit of fall risks at residential construction sites
||4th quarter 2008, Vol.14, No.4, p.243-249. Illus. 24 ref.
||This article describes the development and pilot of a worksite audit system to assess fall prevention safety practices on residential construction sites. The audit was tested at sixteen residential construction sites in the city of St. Louis, United States, showing excellent inter-rater reliability. Results suggest that the audit has good face and content validity and is a reliable instrument for measuring fall safety risks at residential construction sites. It is practical, easy, and safe to administer, making it a potentially useful instrument for field research as well as regular safety monitoring by foremen and crew.
