Like large construction companies, smaller firms can benefit from having a better understanding of their safety climate and also being able to easily access safety management resources that have been shown to improve it. A new research project to create the Safety Climate-Safety Management Information System (SC-SMIS) will do just that. The SC-SMIS is a public, interactive, web-based system that contractors can use to assess their safety climate, select and implement appropriate tools to strengthen it, and engage in continuous safety climate improvement. General contractors can also use the SC-SMIS to engage with their subcontractors in safety-related conversations.
