Abstract [en]

In Stockholm multiple road construction projects are ongoing and the projects magnitude varies. A sustainable infrastructure is fundamental for the requirements put on the city traffic. Three road construction projects with the same building contractor have been studied for this degree project. Two larger and one smaller construction projects. One of Sweden’s largest construction companies is in the frontline on safety and health matter. It is of interest to compare the larger and the small project from a safety perspective. Large construction companies have developed own regulations concerning safety on the construction site. For the safety of the coworkers, differences between the projects, should be identified. If there is a violation of the safety-rules, there should be consequences, according to the company rules. It is of interest to study if there is differences between the taken measures between the studied projects. The method use to conclude the degree project have been; case study and qualitative research. All interviewed respondents’ feels that the prime risk filled activity they are exposed to in their daily work is surrounding civilians. One major difference between the projects is that the workers in the large construction projects considers that the most common near-accident occur in connection with lifting objects with heavy machines. 7 out of 13 respondents recalls that they at some point have had an unsafe behavior at the site that could have risk their own safety. 7 out of 8 of the respondents at the small construction project recalls that they do not used personal protective equipment, this is a major difference from the larger construction project.  Reprimands are more commonly given to skilled workers than to supervisors and site managers.
