Analysis and prevention of construction site accidents

Giedrė Leonavičiūtė, Titas Dėjus, Jurgita Antucheviciene

Abstract

The analysis of reports on construction site accidents suggests that most accidents involve work at high elevations and the lack or inappropriate use of personal protection devices. Therefore, the paper provides several alternatives of personal protection devices intended for the prevention of falls from elevations. It is suggested to select the most appropriate protection device using the new multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) method of the weighted aggregated sum product assessment with grey numbers (WASPAS-G) to help prevent accidents when working at elevations.

Keywords
