Content: Safety climate survey is one of the proactive indicators for measuring the safety performance in the construction industry. By using the results of the safety climate survey, management should be able to (i) identify the underlying climate factors influencing safety or at-risk behaviour of the workers, (ii) prioritise the importance of the climate factors and (iii) properly allocate resources to the corresponding climate factors for enhancing the workplace safety. In this seminar, Mr. YUEN will introduce the concept of safety climate survey and explain how to apply it in the small scale building works.
