Creating a Culture of Health, Safety and Well-Being in the Construction Industry

August 4, 2021
Andrew Butterfield - Construction Executive

In today’s rapidly changing landscape, construction organizations are under growing pressure to deliver projects on time and budget. As a result, health, safety and well-being (HSW) programs are sometimes denied the priority they require. The outcome: company HSW cultures that barely meet satisfactory standards resulting in site mishaps, delays, cost overruns or worse.

Globally, there are around 340 million occupational accidents and 160 million victims of work-related diseases each year, according to the International Labour Organization (ILO). The cost of this damage accounts for almost 4% of the world’s GDP, or $3.2 trillion.
