Abstract [en]

The construction industry stands as one of the industries in Sweden where most employees tend to encounter accidents. At the same time, the Swedish authority of work environment estimates that there are large numbers of hidden statistics with accidents and incidents that never gets reported. To prevent accidents, the Swedish authority of work environment has decided that every company have to, beside report every accident and major incident to the authority of work environment, keep statistics and evaluate every incident that happens at their places of work.

The people responsible for work environment at the Swedish building contractor Peab, believe that it is only a fraction of all incidents happening at their construction sites that actually gets reported. The purpose of this study is to investigate the reason why employees of Peab do not report incidents. By an inquiry and interviews with both craftsmen and office holders at Peab Bygg Öst 1, the employees’ attitudes and knowledge have been studied and evaluated.

The study shows that the craftsmen´s knowledge of incidents is relatively low. At the same time, many of the craftsmen think that the reporting of incidents steal too much time and focus from the production.

The ending part of the report shows suggestions of how Peab can increase the craftsmen´s awareness and interest in reporting incidents. The most important thing is to educate all employees regularly about incidents and the purpose of reporting. Incidents should also become a standard part of the weekly meetings.
