Abstract: The ability to prevent accidents can enhance construction sites as safer work places. The key to preventing accidents is effective risk identification and management, requiring performance feedback via a structured, transparent and auditable assessment process. Current measures of safety performance have not improved safety levels on worksites in Singapore. The problem is a lack of a standard protocol or audit tool that can assess objectively the effectiveness of a construction firm's safety management system. This research note introduces an electronic method for safety auditing through a more efficient mode of data collection and transfer. A survey and on-site trial audit were conducted to validate the system. The findings show that an electronic system can enhance the safety auditing process, resulting in safer work places. © 2007 University of Sydney. All rights reserved.
