Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 - 2:00pm EDT: Assessment of contractor safety (ACES) through prequalification organizational surveys
Presented by: Jack Dennerlein, Professor, Bouve College of Health Sciences, Northeastern University

While many project owners and general contractors review injury rates and worker compensation history of prospective bidders, a growing number are assessing leading indicators as well, such as the quality of their safety management systems. Can leading indicators such as these predict future safety performance? A research team at Northeastern University has created a tool for assessing contractor safety management systems and tested the association between safety assessment scores and injury rates for a population of 2198 contractors. Join Professor Jack Dennerlein as he shares the results and discusses what’s next for this research.
