Work-related injuries and fatalities in the geotechnical site works
TLDR
It is emphasized that project-specific countermeasures should be taken regarding the root causes of accidents, leading to vigorous strategies to develop safety measures.
TYPES OF OCCUPATIONAL ACCIDENTS AND THEIR PREDICTORS AT CONSTRUCTION SITES IN LUSAKA CITY
TLDR
The study established the types of accidents and their predictors which can cause immense human suffering and even death and effective accident prevention policies need to be devised, adhered to, and continuously reviewed.
Analysis of Fatal Building Construction Accidents : Cases and Causes
Inclusive in the engineering factors of growth of the economy of any country is the construction industry, of which Malaysia as a nation is not left out. In spite of its significant contribution, the
Factors influencing road accidents in Sri Lanka: a logistic regression approach
Road accidents are a major socio-economic problem in Sri Lanka. This study aims to identify the factors that mainly contribute to accident severity in Sri Lanka and to identify the significance of
Safety in ready mixed concrete industry: descriptive analysis of injuries and development of preventive measures
TLDR
Problem areas were determined such as; cleaning truck mixer/pump is a hazardous activity where operators get injured frequently, and struck by falling objects is a major hazard at RMC industry, and Job Safety Analyses were performed on these areas to suggest mitigation methods.
Identifying Factors that Contribute to Severity of Construction Injuries using Logistic Regression Model
Consequently, majority of studies in occupational safety leaned towards describing accidents with the aid of surveys and d escriptive statistics. This study intends to fill this gap by using
Evaluating Mixed Reality Notifications to Support Excavator Operator Awareness
TLDR
This work explores two types of mixed reality visualizations and compares them to a traditional display setup in a simulated excavator environment, and indicates benefits for the mixed reality approaches, with lower workload ratings together with an improved rate in detection of presented information.
Have we reached the organisational ceiling? a review of applied accident causation models, methods and contributing factors in construction
Abstract Work-related fatalities continue to represent a significant issue within the construction industry. Contemporary accident causation models are underpinned by systems thinking, however, it is
Moving beyond the organizational ceiling: Do construction accident investigations align with systems thinking?
Serious accidents within the construction industry continue to represent an unacceptable global problem. The aim of this study was to consider the types of actors, factors, and relationships that are
