Abstract [en]

The working environment in construction production is an area that is exposed to a large amount of risks, incidents and accidents. Incidents and risk observations that are the step before accidents happens daily at the construction working environment, which entails an increased risk of someone being injured or even die while doing their works. No one need to hurt themselves or die while doing their jobs, a working environment should be a safe place for everyone. Therefore, the work environment agency, the construction industry and the construction companies in Sweden all are constantly working on improving the working environment in construction production. Although the construction industries has achieved a more well-developed and safer working environment than it was before in time, risks and accidents still happening. This project is carried out with support from the construction company Peab with the aim of strengthening the knowledge of why incidents, risk observations and accidents occur in construction production and within which category the greatest problem occurs. This project has been limited to incidents and accidents within the category of fall from higher altitude. The area in this category is one of the most dangerous working environment areas where the victims are exposed to the worst consequences. The method for this study was carried out through case studies on two different workplaces, questionnaires, interviews and literature study. After the report has been compiled with using all the method and the collected data, it turns out that even today there are problems regarding risk observations, incidents and accidents at the workplaces in construction production. The fact that there are risks in the working environments in construction production depends on many parameters. like lack in communication, plans/controls, deficiencies in attitude / human factor, lack of time/stress, deficiencies in performance and weather conditions are causes that lead to most risks, incidents and accidents. The conclusion shows that the most common incidents and risks that have occurred are related to the category fall which is refer to one area of some type of higher level that is very exposed area. The winter climate in Sweden has a direct connection to the fact that the incidents and the risks through falls and slips increase significantly during the winter months. Problems within the planning phase, the execution phase and the follow-up phase occurs and the basis for the problems depends in most cases on attitude or the human factor. The most important improvement measures in terms of attitude are that every individual must think for himself and consider being more cautious and take the security measures more seriously at the risky areas. Staying for a short while in the work process and thinking before carrying out the work can make a big difference, it will make the person who carrying out the work more caution which in turn will help with reducing accidents and incidents at workplaces in production. The recommendations presented show that there are a lot of improvement measures to take to make workplaces in production safer.
