Communicating Hazard Recognition Practices to the Front Lines

Hazard recognition is a critical skill which is fundamental to many other safety processes, including pre-job planning, work observation programs, and inspections. Yet, hazard recognition among construction workers is relatively poor, with workers able to identify fewer than half the jobsite hazards they encounter. Michael presents an overview of three hazard recognition improvement strategies, field tested at six different project sites, and discuss how these simple tools can improve work crews’ ability to recognize and communicate hazards on the job.
