  • cost benefit analysis for Accident Prevention in construction projects
    Journal of Construction Engineering and Management-asce, 2012
    Co-Authors: Elias Ikpe, Felix Hammon, David Oloke

    Abstract:

    AbstractConstruction is the most dangerous land-based work sector in Europe and the United States The cost of Accidents has received much attention in the recent past, and online interactive tools were developed to assess the cost of Accidents to organizations. Online tools and other sources of information on costs of Accidents in the construction industry were a useful development but failed to support the decision-making process in regard to construction health and safety measures. A cost-benefit analysis (CBA) methodology is presented that would enable contractors to assess the true cost of Accidents Prevention and the associated benefits of Accident Prevention as part of pre- and postcontract project evaluation. The research investigated the cost and benefit of Accident Prevention, with a view to drawing attention to the economic consequences of effective/ineffective management of health and safety by contractors. A quantitative research methodology was employed in investigating these costs and benefi…

  • MODEL PREDICTING COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS (CBA) OF Accident Prevention ON CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
    International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering, 2011
    Co-Authors: Elias Ikpe, Felix Hammond, David Proverbs, David Oloke

    Abstract:

    Health and safety issues are major concerns in the United Kingdom (UK) construction industry. Evidence suggests that research studies on construction health and safety management issues have yet to lead to a significant reduction in the number of Accidents. To tackle the causes of days lost through Accidents and to improve health and safety performance in the construction industry, the industry needs to understand the cost benefit analysis (CBA) of Accident Prevention. The paper reviewed the rate of Accidents in the UK construction industry and presents a model predicting CBA of Accident Prevention on construction projects. A quantitative method approach was used to collect data from health and safety managers in the UK construction industry for the survey. A total of 79 contractors (small, medium and large) participated in the questionnaire survey. A simple linear regression model was adopted to identify the effect of total costs of Accident Prevention on benefits of Accident Prevention. The result revealed that costs of Accident Prevention are significantly associated with benefits of Accident Prevention. The model predicted that the more the contractors spend on Accident Prevention the more the benefit of Accident Prevention they derived. This is part of a wider study to improve the management of health and safety and to propose a way forward for safer and healthier construction sites.

  • Construction Accident Prevention
    , 2011
    Co-Authors: Elias Ikpe, Felix Hammond

    Abstract:

    Shorttitle: The research investigated the net benefit of Accident Prevention and explored the relationship between preventative costs and benefits, with a view to drawing attention to the economic consequences of effective/ineffective management of health and safety by contractors in the UK construction industry. A quantitative research methodology was employed in investigating these costs and benefits within the UK construction industry. The relationships between these costs and benefits were examined. The costs of Accident Prevention were found to be positively and significantly (P < 0.005)associated with benefits of Accident Prevention. These associations were modelled using simple linear regression, and from these models it can be inferred from the results that the more contractors spend on Accident Prevention the more they derive benefits of Accident Prevention, which would improve health and safety performance on construction sites. This developed model should provide good guidance to assist contractors in developing effective and efficient health and safety management for UK construction industry.

  • The role of the teacher in child Accident Prevention
    Journal of Public Health Medicine, 1994
    Co-Authors: Yvonne H. Carter, M. J. Bannon, Peter W. Jones

    Abstract:

    A sample of 278 head teachers of children aged between three and 11 years in North Staffordshire were sent a postal questionnaire to determine the manner and extent to which they were involved in Accident Prevention. The majority of respondents agreed that Accident Prevention was a suitable subject to be taught in schools. However, a minority felt that they had enough background information or training on the subject. First-aid instruction was particularly requested. Levels of reporting and management of individual Accident cases varied. It is desirable that guidelines are agreed on Accident reporting, the role of the school medical service in Accident Prevention and the supervision of children during recreation periods.

  • Health visitors and child Accident Prevention.
    Health visitor, 1992
    Co-Authors: Yvonne H. Carter, M. J. Bannon, Peter W. Jones

    Abstract:

    Yvonne H Carter, Michael J Bannon and Peter W Jones explore the role of health visitors in child Accident Prevention in North Staffordshire, to assess their knowledge and awareness of local data and to facilitate more effective planning of educational provision for health visitors and other primary health care workers.
