Challenges and Measures to the Workplace Health and Safety Issues in Construction Projects

Task: Purpose: To conduct an analysis of workplace health and safety issues by undertaking a construction project as a case study. Brief Description: The purpose of this individual task is to provide a better understanding of workplace health and safety issues and strategies to achieve zero accidents in construction projects. Using a case study of a selected construction project (either an actual project or a project from the literature), you are expected to analyze causes of accidents, identify health and safety issues, and develop countermeasures to enhance safety and prevent accidents in construction sites. Students are also expected to conduct a literature review on workplace health and safety in construction. Along with the case study, conducting a literature review will enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of the subject and help to develop a more comprehensive list of issues and countermeasures Case Study Identification: Each student needs to identify a suitable and real construction project as a case study. The project can be an ongoing project or completed one. The project can be a building project, infrastructure project, or any other type of construction projects. Students should have a reasonable level of access to the case study so they will be able to collect sufficient information to complete the requirements of this assignment. Example of materials students have to have access to include, but not limited to: Project overview Project design and drawings Specifications and construction method Site layout plan Work health and safety plans and documents (if any) Students who have difficulty to find a suitable construction project may use hypothetical case study or use extensive literature review instead. The literature review should cover different and high quality journal papers to answer the assignment requirements. Requirements Explain health and safety issues in the construction site (from the case study or literature review). Identify construction injuries, hazards and risks that may occur during construction stage (from the case study or literature review). Propose a classification of injuries and hazards in construction sites (e.g. based on causes, based on building components, etc.). Develop a method to manage injuries and hazards (controlling, prevention, and minimization).
