RR236 - Improving health and safety in construction: Phase 2 - Depth and breadth: Phase 2 - Depth and breadth: Volume 7 - Analysis of HSE Mechanisms

Describes a study into the use of the Influence Network to develop a model to relate HSE interventions to health and safety in construction. This will aid the development of strategies and monitoring their effectiveness. An Influence Network workshop was held with HSE Construction Division staff. Analyses have given an insight into the underlying organisational and human factors influencing accidents and ill-health. The current HSE intervention strategy is targeted at two safety issues, four health issues and five groups of stakeholders. Five key risk control measures have been identified for reducing risks when used to underpin the intervention strategy. These include mechanisms for: design improvements; targeting SMEs; demonstrating economic benefits; raising awareness of organisational duties; and increasing risk perception/competence among workers.
