Hazards in the construction sector include falls, mishandling materials, equipment and plant, being struck by falling objects and constructions, landslips, electrocution, explosions and intoxication. Accident rates are among the highest, partly due to the nature of the work and partly as a result of inadequate attention to occupational safety and health on the part of both management and employees. This project offered practical training in risk management to small and very small companies and followed the trainees back at their construction sites to assess the efficiency of the training. There was a particular focus on temporary and mobile sites.
