Good health and safety made Olympics a success

4th December 2012 | Health and Safety Signs

An excellent safety record was one of the key successes during construction of the London 2012 Olympic Park, a new study has revealed.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which funded the research, has said that construction sites of all sizes could adopt elements of the approach with similar results.

The study identified 13 distinct characteristics in relationships between clients, contractors, designers, workers and regulators during the Olympic Delivery Authority's Big Build, which it says created the 'pre-conditions' for ground breaking safety performance.

According to the study, successful safety management relies on systems and people working together in tandem, with safety gear, proper planning, health and safety signs and full compliance essential and people relying on each other to achieve the best outcomes.

HSE Board member Howard Shiplee, director of construction for the Olympic Delivery Authority, said that lessons can be learned from the project.

"Though London 2012 was a unique experience for everyone involved, fundamentally it was no different from other construction projects and there is no reason that what worked during the Olympic Park build cannot work elsewhere," he added.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801500333-ADNFCR
