Abstract [en]

There are presently a number of projects that aim to minimize the number of work related accidents on construction sites in Sweden. The industry has one of the highest number of accidents as well as the highest number of work related deaths. What causes these accidents varies and there are several action plans to overcome them. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate whether and, if so,how the social culture of construction sites could benefit from a more even gender distribution and how the number of work related accidents could be affected. The survey consists mainly of interviews. A literature studie and a poll have been conducted with the purpose of gaining background information as well as making more general conclusions regarding construction sites. The result shows that the employees who participated in thesurvey agree there is a macho culture on construction sites. However, whether or not this is a problem there are shared opinions. A majority of the employees, on the other hand, experience a difference in security mentality depending on gender, and by extension that the safety culture in the workplace would change if a more even gender distribution existed. Finally, further examination is recommended in the form of amore extensive interview study comprising of several projects.This study would generate a more detailed comparison and providea broader view of how the current situation stands. A statistical comparison of work related accidents would also be of interestas it would more clearly demonstrate any differences between projects with different gender segregation.
