CBRE India promotes proactive safety culture in construction

The top real estate consulting firm in India, CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd., discusses the idea of safety culture, its importance, and practical methods for building and strengthening it inside companies in their most recent report, “Safety Culture in Construction.”

Examining roughly 380,000 instances from different real estate sectors over the previous five years, the report delves into the findings. A noteworthy pattern appears, indicating that in more than 90 percent of these cases, carelessness, mistake, and ignorance were the main contributing causes. This emphasises how vital it is to take proactive measures to solve these underlying problems and put safety first. In addition, the study promotes the use of industry-wide safety standards by evaluating health and safety practices across projects using standardised indicators such as the Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) and Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR).

The report reveals variable degrees of safety challenges through the analysis of accidents across various real estate industries. Retail projects had the lowest occurrence rate, at 60, while residential projects are at the top of the list, with 635 incidences per project. The alternative, industrial, and warehousing sectors record 405 events in total, with other divisions reporting 259 incidents. The construction industry’s varied safety landscape is illuminated by the 160 occurrences that the office sector records.

In the construction industry, it is the duty of all parties involved—clients, contractors, designers, labourers, and regulatory agencies—to ensure health and safety. Every stakeholder is essential to creating a safe workplace and reducing hazards. Every action helps to foster a strong safety culture, from encouraging open lines of communication to funding extensive training courses, from carrying out in-depth incident investigations to embracing technological breakthroughs.

The need for customised training programmes to develop a robust safety culture is emphasised in the report. It describes many training choices, from fundamental safety procedures to specialised training tailored to a given hazard and programmes for developing leadership skills. Through periodic updates of these programmes to account for changing rules and technological advancements, organisations may equip employees with the necessary knowledge and abilities to effectively handle safety concerns.

The paper also examines how technology has the ability to completely change safety procedures in the construction sector. Emerging technologies like robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) as well as wearables and drones, are just a few examples of how technological advancements can improve worker safety and proactive risk management.

Looking ahead, cooperative efforts, responsible technology adoption, and a never-ending quest for improvement are critical to the survival of safety culture in the Indian construction sector. The industry can create a safer and healthier work environment for all stakeholders by emphasising safety at every level and seizing new opportunities.

The analysis by CBRE India highlights the critical role that safety culture plays in the construction industry and offers organisations looking to improve safety standards useful information. The construction industry can steer towards a future where safety is not only a priority but also a basic principle that permeates every aspect of construction operations by banding together and demonstrating unshakable commitment.
