Incident reporting within JM (English)
The construction business is one of the most accident prone businesses in Sweden. In order to make it safer it’s vital that all employees of a company report all accidents and incidents that occur. This report intends through qualitative interviews, to analyze the knowledge and attitude towards incident reporting among the employees of the Swedish construction contractor JM.
The goal of the thesis work is to hopefully contribute to an increase of employees’ awareness on those issues. This report also intends to analyze why not all of the occurring incidents are reported and which measures can be taken in order to increase the number of reported incidents.
The study shows that the knowledge towards incidents and accidents is diverse among all employees. Many employees are having difficulties defining what incidents are to be reported and many craftsmen don’t know how and why they should report an incident. The major differences are on the one hand between craftsmen and white-collar workers, and on the other hand between senior employees and new recruits.
In order to increase the number of reported incidents, JM can introduce incident report pads to be carried by their employees at all time. They can also continue educating their employees in why it’s important to report all incidents and how to complete a report.
