Comparative analysis of safety culture & risk perceptions among Latino and non-Latino workers in the construction industry by David Gilkey( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Construction job sites are among the most dangerous workplaces within all types of industries. There is growing evidence that safety culture and risk perception have a direct influence on worker perceptions about company priorities, safe work behaviors and resulting injury and death. This study investigated 341 construction workers using the Safety Culture and Risk Perception Survey to measure safety culture and risk perception among Latino and non- Latino workers in residential, commercial and heavy civil sectors in the Denver, CO, metropolitan area. Investigators compared the responses by ethnicity and construction sector. Results by ethnicity indicated that Latino workers were more concerned about the risk of injury and have more difficulty understanding safety rules and procedures than their non-Latino counterparts. Results by sector indicated that residential construction workers are younger and have higher levels of concern for injury risk than workers in the commercial and heavy civil sectors
