A Qualitative Study of Safety Issues in Industrialised Buildings in China
Keywords:Industrialised buildings, Safety, Impacts
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the safety issues of industrialised buildings in China, with a particular focus on the differences between conventional and industrialised projects. To achieve this, interviews were conducted with 20 people from different professional backgrounds. The results of the study indicate that safety concerns in industrialised construction in China can be grouped into four main factors: shortage of skilled workers, challenges in lifting operations, lack of managerial responsibility, climatic factors and unexpected accidents. The results of this study could guide policy makers, including government officials and contractors in industry, in developing a new safety prevention approach. These findings will also inform the future management of safety in industrialised construction in China.
