Occupational accidents have a massive personal and social cost as well as a major financial cost. The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries, accounting for around 20a€“30% of all occupational deaths worldwide. The accompanying financial cost is either absorbed directly or passed on in the form of higher insurance costs. In addition, regulatory bodies have started to impose legal accountability on all the parties along the construction supply chain. OHS is hard to implement. Construction projects are complex, with a fluid workforce, and the regulatory framework is highly elaborate. OHS Electronic Management Systems for Construction presents a theoretical framework which is designed to overcome these difficulties, integrating OHS management in construction using knowledge management and web technologies. This framework is explained in a clear step-by-step way, as are features such as a systematically developed corporate safety memory, and a virtual learning portal to facilitate on-demand safety training. The ultimate aim of this book is to aid the development of an established safety culture at the organisational level, and the formation of an industry-wide community of safety practice. This is essential reading for OHS professionals and construction managers attempting to change their industry for the better, as well as advanced students and researchers.... system 119a€“20; industry evaluation 123a€“5; member collaboration and safety knowledge management 121; terms of reference 117a€“18; ... web-based infrastructure for KMenabled OHS management framework 15a€“16, 16, 25; affective e-OHS training system see affective ... 44a€“5, 45; challenges overcome by web-based system 43a€“4, 46; flow chart 36; Joomla see Joomla; knowledge representation treeanbsp;...
