Risk management and injury prevention : competencies, behaviours, and attitudes to safety in the construction industry
Biggs, Herbert C., Sheahan, Vaughn L., & Dinsdag, Donald P. (2007) Risk management and injury prevention : competencies, behaviours, and attitudes to safety in the construction industry. Australian Journal of Rehabilitation Counselling, 13(2), pp. 63-67.
Work in the Australian construction industry is fraught with risk and the potential for serious harm. The industry is consistently placed within the three most hazardous industries to work along with other industries such as mining and transport (National Occupational Health and Safety Commission, 2003). In the 2001 to 2002 period, construction work killed 39 people and injured 13,250 more. Hence, more effort is required to reduce the injury rate and maximise the value of the rehabilitation/back-to-work process.
