Abstract
The results of the second National Conference of Ergonomics, Safety, and Health in Construction, held in 1995, were reported. The current state of occupational safety and health in the construction industry was discussed, including recent progress, and obstacles to safety and health improvements. The structure of the industry was described. The roles of the market, government, owners, management and the worker in development of a safety culture were considered. Recommended approaches to improving worker safety and health in the construction industry included developing a greater culture of safety, developing project focus at every construction site, development of benchmark and proposed performance goals, use of an emphasis on results by OSHA, keeping current on international developments in safety and health, using training to reduce accidents and occupational illnesses, combining medical coverage under workers' compensation with general health insurance, improving data collection, researching economic aspects, and expanding research in safety and health.
