||This report covers work undertaken towards improving safety and health in construction. The Phase 1 scope consists of collecting and reviewing data in support of the British Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1985 (RIDDOR) (see CIS 88-1753), to help understand causal factors underlying construction accidents, and to structure the information on accident causation using an "influence network" to provide a basis for quantifying risk and the benefits of improvement measures. The report concentrates on falls from height as the principal source of construction fatalities and makes recommendations on data collection and analysis, and strategies for improving safety and health.
