Abstract
There is a growing awareness that green design and construction practices may affect construction worker safety. ..An in-depth review of the LEED-NC rating system for new construction found that many of the credits do not influence construction worker safety, while other credits may produce either a positive or a negative effect. ..In some cases, attaining the LEED-NC credits may increase the amount of exposure to, or extent of, hazards that already exist on the construction site. ..Suggested modifications to the LEED-NC credits have been developed to mitigate their effect on construction worker safety and aid in ensuring that green buildings are also safe to construct.
