Integrating Work Health and Safety Into Construction Project Management by Helen Lingard

Provides insights into how health and safety can be more effectively integrated into the procurement, design, and management of construction projects

This book aims to explore the ways in which technological, organizational, and cultural strategies can be combined and integrated into construction project management to produce sustained and significant health and safety (H&S) improvements. It looks at design and safety practices, work organization, workforce engagement and learning, and offers ideas for producing systemic change.

Integrating Work Health and Safety into Construction Project Management addresses how best to achieve safety in design through the adoption of a stakeholder management approach. It instructs on how to drive H&S improvements through supply chain integration and responsible procurement and project management practices. It examines the components of a culture for health and safety and the development of a cultural maturity model. The book discusses the potential to improve H&S through the provision of conditions of work that afford workers a positive work-life balance. It also covers how advanced technologies and the application of techniques developed from health informatics can support real time analysis and improvement of H&S in construction. Lastly, it looks at the benefits associated with engaging workers and using their tacit H&S knowledge to inform work process improvements.

Health and safety is a very important part of any project and the Project Manager is responsible for making sure that this area is covered. Either a safety expert should join the team or advice should be taken from a consultant. Industry standards will often apply.

Conference Paper Quality Management 29 October As project managers, we are accustomed to providing metrics on the health of our projects, and not so much with the health of the project team. The aim of this paper is to delve into the nuances of health, safety, and the environment as key performance indicators KPIs of project health—understanding how to plan, manage, and report these activities. The critical intersection of project and safety management involves the management and reduction of income erosion, while enhancing quality and creating critical cultural enrichment. To better understand the integration, it helps to look at these disciplines from their separate points of view. For project managers, the overall health of the project has been our primary concern—and mostly from an expanded triple constraint model tied to earned value: are we doing what we said we'd accomplish, on the schedule we said, and for the amount of money we stated, all while delivering the quality the customer is expecting. Our safety professionals liken the journey to what are we doing to ensure that every employee has been trained to accomplish their jobs safely, meet or exceed regulatory requirements, and in many cases, have a behavioral or observational safety program to actively ensure that employees are actually doing what the job entails.

Non - PRINCE2 information

Health and safety management is the process of identifying and minimising threats to workers and those affected by the work throughout the project, programme and portfolio life cycle. The P3 management team needs to consider health and safety across the entire life cycle, starting at the concept phase and continuing through to closure. This involves:. All managers are responsible for ensuring that the work under their control complies with all relevant health and safety legislation. They play a critical role in leading by example and ensuring that the team develops a good health and safety culture. They need to have a good overview of the applicable legislation but are not expected to be experts in health and safety. They are required to seek competent advice to assist them in discharging their responsibilities.

  1. This is particularly true for projects that involve hands-on fieldwork, such as automotive, construction, manufacturing, energy, and utility industries.
