              Preventing Workplace Incidents in Construction: Data Mining and Analytics Applications (Hardback)

              The construction industry is vital to any national economy; it is also one of the most susceptible to workplace incidents. The unacceptably high rates of incidents in construction have huge socio-economic consequences for the victims, their families and friends, co-workers, emplo...yers and society at large. Construction safety researchers have introduced numerous strategies, models and tools through scientific inquiries involving primary data collection and analyses. While these efforts are commendable, there is a huge potential to create new knowledge and predictive models to improve construction safety by utilising already existing data about workplace incidents. In this new book, Imriyas Kamardeen argues that more sophisticated approaches need to be deployed to enable improved analyses of incident data sets and the extraction of more valuable insights, patterns and knowledge to prevent work injuries and illnesses. The book aims to apply data mining and analytic techniques to past workplace incident data to discover patterns that facilitate the development of innovative models and strategies. Thereby improving work health, safety and wellbeing in construction and curtailing the high rate of incidents. It is essential reading for researchers and professionals in construction, health and safety and anyone interested in data analytics.

              The role of designers has traditionally been to design a building so that it conforms to accepted local building codes. The safety of workers is left up to the contractor building the designs. Research shows, however, that designers can have an especially strong influence on cons...truction safety during the concept, preliminary and detailed design phases. This book establishes the new knowledge and conceptual frameworks necessary to develop a mobile computing-enabled knowledge management system that can help reduce the high rate of construction falls. There are three main objectives of this book: 1. To create a new Prevention through Design (PtD) knowledge base to model the relationships between fall risks and design decisions; 2. To develop a PtD mobile App to assist building designers in fall prevention through design; 3. To evaluate the practical implications of the PtD mobile App for the construction industry, especially for building designers and workers. The cutting edge technologies explored in this book have the potential to significantly reduce the rate of serious injuries that occur in the global construction industry. This is essential reading for researchers and advanced students of construction management with an interest in safety or mobile technologies.

              Occupational accidents have a massive personal and social cost as well as a major financial cost. The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries, accounting for around 20-30% of all occupational deaths worldwide. The accompanying financial cost is either absorb...ed directly or passed on in the form of higher insurance costs. In addition, regulatory bodies have started to impose legal accountability on all the parties along the construction supply chain. OHS is hard to implement. Construction projects are complex, with a fluid workforce, and the regulatory framework is highly elaborate. OHS Electronic Management Systems for Construction presents a theoretical framework which is designed to overcome these difficulties, integrating OHS management in construction using knowledge management and web technologies. This framework is explained in a clear step-by-step way, as are features such as a systematically developed corporate safety memory, and a virtual learning portal to facilitate on-demand safety training. The ultimate aim of this book is to aid the development of an established safety culture at the organisational level, and the formation of an industry-wide community of safety practice. This is essential reading for OHS professionals and construction managers attempting to change their industry for the better, as well as advanced students and researchers.

              Improving the Psychological Health of Foreign Workers in Developing Countries: A Socio-Ecological Analysis of the Saudi Construction Industry
               

              Improving the Psychological Health of Foreign Workers in Developing Countries: A Socio-Ecological Analysis of the Saudi Construction Industry (Hardback)

              Managing psychological health of the workforce in developing countries has more challenges than in developed nations. Among the challenges are: bureaucracy, ineffective institutional structures for implementing work health and safety laws, and ignorance on the part of workers abo...ut their rights to a decent workplace. However, the manifestation of these challenges varies from country to country, and therefore requires contextualised studies. Countries in the Middle East feature a unique phenomenon compared to other developing countries. Generally, its workforce is composed of expatriate workers from neighbouring developing countries. Among the Middle Eastern industries, the Saudi construction industry boasts a rapid growth with mega projects, but it has been reported that the psychological health of foreign workers who make it possible is constantly deteriorating. However, so far no studies have been undertaken to provide a solution to this dismal situation. This book aims to contribute to the improvement of the psychological wellbeing of foreign workers in the Saudi construction industry. The book first explores the factors affecting the psychological health of foreign workers and then provides a framework of suggestions to counteract them. This book demonstrates the application of the socio-ecological theory as an effective lens to analyse the problem and to develop solutions. Traditionally, it is believed that excessive mental stressors in professional settings are the primary triggers of poor psychological health among workers. However, the socio-ecological model looks beyond the workplace and explains the complex interactions between humans and their environments (social, institutional and cultural contexts of people) that influence the psychological health and human behaviours. It also guides a scientifically methodical design of research for broad investigations. The book will therefore serve as a valuable and handy resource for construction professionals, wor
