Picture of the productCase Study: Construction Safety
Safety management in construction workplaces can be challenging due to the dynamic, temporal,
and hazardous nature of construction operations. The challenge becomes even more complex
when multiple employers, subcontractors, and workers with sometimes diverging interests
and incentives come together to work on complex projects. Not surprisingly, construction
workplaces account for a disproportionate number of workplace incidents. In addition to the
pain and distress these injuries cause, they also result in significant costs and workers’ compen sation claims that threaten the sustainability and success of many construction businesses. This
case study presents an incident scenario that illustrates the challenges of managing safety in a
multi-employer workplace.
