Making health and safety work for you

Human factors play a part in over 90% of accidents in the workplace. Understanding human factors means not just considering the physical abilities and skills of employees, but also other factors that affect how peopleConstruction worker behave at work, such as:

  • the workplace environment
  • job procedures
  • organisational issues such as leadership style and values.

All these elements are part of an organisation's 'safety culture'.
