Digiting Health and Safety: White Paper
Over the past three decades, the construction industry has invested heavily in training and cultural change programmes aimed to improve and eliminate the risk of injury and harm to people at work. And that investment has worked: there have been significant reductions in death, injury and accident rates from the late 1980s.
Yet over the last five years, those downward trends have faltered.
However, we’ve hit a plateau and the number of people dying and getting injured in the UK remains the same. The industry needs a step change; technology offers the opportunity for that change.
This white paper aims to highlight the issues with the management of health and safety in construction and shine a light on how digital technologies can and already are paving the way for change.
What you will learn from this health and safety white paper:
- Where do we want to be? A focus on improvement.
- Whose responsibility is it anyway?
- How can digital technologies help us to improve?
- What are the barriers to improvement?
- How can we use data to improve?
- Looking ahead – the future for health and safety
