Abstract [en]

In 2016, 2089 construction-related accidents occurred in Sweden and five of these had fatal outcomes. Lift accidents are not the most common type of construction-related accidents, but they are most often serious – two of the accidents with fatal outcome in 2016 were lift related accidents. Therefor, a project group in Skanska was assigned to review all of the company's lift-related incidents and accidents, which were reported in the BIA between July 1, 2014 and June 29, 2015. The project group identified 203 incidents and 22 accidents during this period, and then proposed three key areas of development: the lifting operation procedures; training and education; implementation of revised operation procedures.

In this degree project, Skanska's lifting operations have been studied, in order to identify possible areas of improvements. The Swedish Work Environment Authority's regulations and Skanska's own documentation on lifting operations were studied and Skanska's documentation meets the requirements in the Swedish Work Environment Authority's legal regulations. In addition, interviews had been conducted with employees involved in lifting operations at Skanska. These revealed that the theoretical documentations about lifting operation procedures are good, however practical training in lifting operations is scarce and the transfer of lifting operation related knowledge between workers could be improved.

In order to reduce incidents and accidents during lifting operations, a solution could be to offer Skanska's education Safer Lift ISO, which consists of both theoretical and practical elements, to all staff working with lifting operations. It is also of great importance to identify the causes of all lift related incidents and accidents in order to prevent these in the future.
