Abstract:
This thesis addresses the issue of measuring worker engagement in health and safety management in the construction industry. The concept of worker engagement has become important due to the lack of effectiveness of regulation in reducing accidents and incidents in this most risky of industrial environments. It is believed that by involving workers at all levels in the project organisation in health and safety matters and their resolution, the rate of injury can be better controlled. The study adapted and contextualised an existing management tool created by the author, based on the proposition that there are e accepted dimensions that describe worker engagement in health and safety in construction and that they can be measured.
