Título A new-generation safety contest in the construction industry - A long-term evaluation of a real-life intervention
Información bibliográfica June 2010, Vol.48, No.5, p.680-686. Illus. 6 ref.
Resumen A new-generation safety campaign has been taking place in southern Finland since 1997. The Finnish Construction Employers' Association, together with trade unions, safety inspectorates and other institutions have been organising a safety contest based on the standardised TR-observation method. Safety inspectors conduct evaluation visits without previous notice to the sites, and best performing companies and sites are rewarded at annually held public seminars. Even though participation was voluntary, more than 70% of the construction sites in the target area participated in the contest, and the results have been successful. A key success factor may be the adoption among firms of a new, standardised safety monitoring method which has been used effectively by senior management teams. The method employs a combination of penalties and incentives in order to set and enforce new safety targets. Another success factor is the close co-operation between the construction industry, labour organisations and safety authorities.
