Use of safety management practices for improving project performance
Posted on 10 January 2017 by Azlinda Abd Rahim (Library Manager)

Although site safety has long been a key research topic in the construction field, there is a lack of literature studying safety management practices (SMPs). The current research, therefore, aims to test the effect of SMPs on project performance. An empirical study was conducted in Hong Kong and the data collected were analysed with multiple regression analysis. Results suggest that 3 of the 15 SMPs, which were ‘safety committee at project/site level’, ‘written safety policy’, and ‘safety training scheme’ explained the variance in project performance significantly. Discussion about the impact of these three SMPs on construction was provided. Assuring safe construction should be an integral part of a construction project plan.
