Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to anazlye accidents occurring in the Swedish construction industry focusing specifically on the situation in the individual trades. The article includes all occupational accidents with at least one day of absence from work that were reported to the Swedish Social Insurance Agency for the year of 2016. The results, focusing on accident cause, injured body parts, as well as accidents per weekday, month and age, show that although the trades share commonalities regarding occupational accidents a number of trade-specific problem areas stand out. With this in mind, conclusions are drawn regarding the situation in each respective trade and suggestions are made for future studies focusing on accidents in construction industry trades.

BACKGROUND

The paper is a research review focusing on occupational safety in the construction industry.

OBJECTIVE

The purpose is to present research that highlights the areas of occupational safety and risks and to identify areas where research is lacking.

METHODS

326 articles from scientific journals, mainly covering the construction industry in Europe, Canada, USA, Australia and Japan have been studied. The findings are presented under 11 categories: accident statistics; individual factors; legislation and regulations; ethical considerations; risk management; leadership, management, organization; competence; safety design; cost-benefit calculations; programs and models; and technical solutions.

RESULTS

The research is dominated by initiatives from researchers and government authorities, while the construction industry only appears as the object for the research. There is a scarcity of research on integrated systems encompassing subcontractors, as well as a lack of research with sociological perspectives on accidents. Furthermore, only a few studies have applied a gender perspective on safety in construction, i.e. there is a need of further research in this particular area.

CONCLUSIONS

A range of initiatives have been taken to increase safety in the construction industry and the initiatives are mainly reported to be successful. There are some cultural differences, but basically researchers present similar results regardless of country.

Abstract [sv]

Svensk byggindustri betraktas internationellt sett i många avseenden som ett föredöme och ett framgångsexempel när det gäller arbetsmiljö och arbetsförhållanden. Trots det är branschen fortfarande drabbad av en stor andel allvarliga arbetsplatsolyckor som i flera fall per år leder till att den drabbade omkommer. Huvudsyftet med denna studie är att belysa bakomliggande orsaker till allvarliga arbetsolyckor inom branschen.

 

Studien bygger i huvudsak på två genomförda enkätundersökningar. Den första enkätundersökningen, som genomfördes under hösten 2011 och våren 2012, vände sig till medarbetare inom svensk byggindustri som någon gång under åren 2005, 2007, 2009 eller 2011 råkat ut för en allvarlig arbetsolycka. Den andra enkätundersökningen genomfördes under hösten 2013 i syfte att nå en referensgrupp av byggnadsarbetare som inte råkat ut för allvarliga arbetsplatsolyckor. Enkätundersökningarna föregicks av intervjuer med branschrepresentanter som också varit delaktiga i utformandet av enkäterna. Det insamlade datamaterialet har bearbetats och analyserats med hjälp av statistikprogrammet SPSS. Därefter har en kompletterande litteraturstudie genomförts i syfte att, där det varit möjligt, också belysa studiens resultat i en internationell kontext och visa på möjliga vägar för en fortsatt utveckling mot säkrare arbetsplatser.

 

Studiens resultat ger en komplex bild av bakomliggande orsaker till allvarliga arbetsolyckor inom branschen. Personfaktorer som ålder och attityd och inställning till säkerhet påverkar riskerna liksom den säkerhetskultur som präglar arbetsplatsen. Det finns också ett klart samband mellan stress och allvarliga olycksfall. Arbetsledningen måste gå i bräschen och ge säkerhetsfrågorna högsta prioritet. Ett väl fungerande förebyggande arbete för hälsa och säkerhet är starkt kopplat till god planering av arbetet på arbetsplatsen i övrigt och olycksfallsriskerna.

Abstract [en]

Design is a learning process and the use of prototyping activities for the sake of learning increases thedesign thinking, i.e. the dialogue and feedback on ideas. Hence, representations ranging from sketchesto different kind of models and animations are recommended to be used as prototypes to mediate userneeds and to support communication within the team. Low-fidelity prototyping enables rapidvisualisation of ideas, reframes failures into learning, generates perceptual progress and supportscreativity. In product design, different visualisation techniques are used to generate and communicateideas since thinking visually is seen as necessary for innovation.This paper describes the work of developing a course where you combine the task of workplace designwith traditional industrial design visualisation methods like sketching, model making and 3Dcomputer aids. By using the knowledge and experience from product design and incorporate it intoworkplace design, a process where all parties contribute in new ways could be achieved.In the course the students start by performing an individual investigation of the present research frontfor production visualisation by summarizing and analysing a number of scientific articles. A workplace design project was then performed where exploratory, explanatory and persuasive visualizingtechniques were implemented. Through a creative and constructive collaboration across disciplinaryboundaries, Industrial Production Environment and Industrial Design, we have created andimplemented a course in an area that has been lacking in our Master Program.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to carry out a broad survey and analysis of relevant research articles about "piece rate" wages and their effects on health and safety, which were published internationally until the fall of 2008. The aim was to summarize and describe the state of the art of the research in this field and if possible draw conclusions from the accumulated research results. A total of 75 research articles were examined extensively and 31 of these were found relevant and had sufficient quality to serve the purpose of this study. The findings of these relevant articles are summarized and analyzed in the survey. Since the late 1980s, there has been a change of research focus regarding previous termpiece rates and their effects on health and safety.next term More recent research shows a clear interest for previous termhealth,next term musculoskeletal injuries, physical workload, pains and occupational injuries. The previous interest in risk behavior, security and accidents is still there, but no longer dominates the research scene.Although research is still sparse and fragmented, much of the accumulated knowledge about the previous termeffects of piece ratenext term work tells us that previous termpiece ratesnext term in many situations have a negative previous termeffect on health and safety.next term The fact that 27 of the 31 studied articles found negative previous termeffects of piece ratesnext term on different aspects of previous termhealth and safetynext term does not prove causality, but together they give very strong support for the hypothesis that in most situations previous termpiece ratesnext term have negative previous termeffects on health and safety.next termIn order to achieve better knowledge about the previous termeffects of piece ratesnext term in branches where previous termpiece ratesnext term are regarded problematic, further research is needed and such research has to be designed to meet the specific questions that are to be answered.

Abstract [sv]

Utmärkande för Luleå tekniska universitet (LTU) har länge varit närheten mellan studenterna och lärarna vilket har manifesterats genom klassrumsundervisning, lärartillgänglighet, mindre studiegrupper, koncentrerade campus etc. Undervisningsformerna har dock ändrats till att idag omfatta dels klassiska föreläsningar i stora studentgrupper, men också projektarbete i team där totalt sett 1/3 av all undervisning vid Luleå tekniska universitet sker i projektform. En fråga har ställts: Har Luleå tekniska universitet idag en gemensam pedagogisk idé för ingenjörsutbildningarna? I så fall är ytterligare en fråga hur denna pedagogiska idé tar sig uttryck i organisationen?Intervjuer med 40 aktiva lärare vid Luleå tekniska universitet har genomförts av projektgruppen (tillika författarna) varpå svaren har grupperats och analyserats i fjorton olika teman. Från dessa teman har sedan fyra hörnstenar i en definition av en pedagogisk idé aggregerats. Formuleringen av den pedagogiska idén lyder: Ett aktivt lärande för yrkeslivet – i branschnära projekt och med god vetenskaplig grund tränas förmågan att arbeta som ingenjör genom coachning från lärare i ett nära och öppet klimat. Idén har antagits av den tekniska fakultetsnämnden vid Luleå tekniska universitet och verifierats på institutionerna. Exempel på implementering och hur den pedagogiska idén aktivt verkar presenteras i artikeln.
