4 Plenary Session Take a safety journey. Review the project team mission.Review the research methodology.Reveal best practices identified.Provide examples of key findings.Provide overview of our Implementation Session.
5 Construction Industry Facts 636,000 construction companies>7,000,000 persons employed in constructionConstruction industry (risk)18% of work-related deaths15% of all workers’ compensation casesApproximately 1,000 construction workers killed each year
6 Zero Accidents Study Findings – 1993 High-impact zero accident techniquesPre-project/pre-task planning for safetySafety orientation and trainingWritten safety incentive programsAlcohol and substance abuse programsAccident/incident investigations

9 Zero Accidents – Revisited 5,148,000,000 work-hours worked by CII Member Companies51% reduction in recordable injuriesWhat safety best practices have supported this improvement and are at the forefront of safety management today?Making Zero Accidents A RealityCII Project Team 160Formed 1999
10 Project Team Mission Statement Make zero accidents a reality through research and identification of current Zero Accidents best practices that have provided proven results across a broad spectrum of the construction industry.
11 Expanded Project Team Mission Statement Develop a communication and education component to assist inunderstanding and implementationof best practices that supporta Zero Accidents culture.
12 CII Zero Accidents Study 2000–2001 Methodology – two studiesLarge construction firmsLarge construction projectsSurveyed largest U.S. construction firmsBased on 1999 ENR 400400 surveys sent; 102 responses
13 CII Zero Accidents Study 2000–2001 Detailed interviews on 38 North American construction projects ($50-$600 million):PetrochemicalIndustrialPublic worksTransportationHotel-casinoCommercial buildings
14 Nine Industry Best Practices Demonstrated management commitmentStaffing for safetySafety planningSafety training and educationWorker participation and involvementRecognition and rewardsSubcontractor managementAccident/incident reporting and investigationsDrug and alcohol testing
15 Best Practice ResultsOver 30 key findings revealed that companies utilizing these best practices have significantly lower recordable injury rates.
16 Zero Accidents StudyOf the 38 construction projects interviewed, four projects have achieved zero accidents.(pdeforge first slide)John:Paul, management commitment has been around since the time of the pyramids, what exactly are these slides telling us?Paul:John, you are correct and it’s a very good question.I will review only 3 of the findings that have a significant impact on improving RIR.I’m sure that if you were to ask any SVP/VP/Director or manager if they were committed to their safety program , the answer would be an emphatic “YES”However, John, the key word here is “DEMONSTRATED”The data here shows that there is a significant improvement in the recordable injury rate in top performing companies that use “top management participation in the investigation of ALL recordable injuries.Their RIR is 1.2The data further validates the finding where top management participationin in recordable injury investigations is 50% or less.Their RIR 6.9The importance here is the delta of 5,2
17 Demonstrated Management Commitment Top management participated in investigation of recordable injuries1.26.89
24 Recognition and Rewards Your incentive program is based on zero accident objective1.333.29

26 Implementation Session Panel presentation and discussionReview and discuss nine best practices that support Zero Accidents culture.Distribute “Making Zero Accidents A Reality” pocket card.Describe education module and best practice data sheets.

28 Our workers are our key core competency. Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.Will RogersAccident reduction has improved significantly since 1993, but we won’t just sit there.Our workers are our key core competency.We will continue to strive for Zero Accidents.
29 Construction Project Improvement Conference 2001: A Construction Odyssey Trends and PerspectivesThe Benchmarking & Metrics program began in Unlike a research team that sunsets after the publish their findings the Benchamrking and Metrics program continues to collect data and provide feedback back to the member companies that participate in the program.In addition information is shared with research and implementation.This chart represents the Owners that are participating in the program.Construction Industry InstituteAustin, Texas
