Summary Statement

A multifaceted study of occupational safety culture and habits in the Irish construction industry.

At least four researchers visited each of the eighteen sites and spent approximately half a day on each site. Due, primarily, to the availability of the research staff, management interviews, operative's surveys and observational surveys were conducted at the same time, independently by different research personnel, on all Dublin sites. However, on sites in the Irish Republic, outside Dublin and in Northern Ireland, management interviews and operatives surveys were conducted at the same time and site observations were conducted on a different day.
