In construction, there is an ironic relationship between quality and safety, and speed and schedule. While much effort is devoted to completing projects on schedule, ensuring quality and safety often benefits from a pause for more planning that sometimes even requires that work be slowed down to avoid accidents and rework.
What signals can help a project team recognize that best path to high quality, injury- and incident-free construction calls for additional thinking, coordination and clarifications about the design? What signals can help a project team recognize when safety-critical activities should be postponed in favor of better planning, equipment, and different staff? Is research available to provide guidance for this counter-intuitive slowing of the rush to completion?
ENR's panel of experts will share their insights about the way management and safety science has evolved on this topic.
