The effect of team building practices on safety performance
Sykes, Marshall T.
MetadataShow full item record
Team Building creates a working atmosphere where characteristics are developed that enable the team to be effective. Construction projects that have successful safety programs have many of the same characteristics of effective teams. This thesis analyzes whether team building use affects safety performance for different sized projects. Comparisons are also made of safety practices based on team building use. The analysis is centered on the data collected in the 1996 and 1997 Benchmarking and Metrics surveys that were conducted by the Construction Industry Institute.
