  2. The causes of injuries will be examined from various perspectives with insights of how injuries can be prevented.
  3. The effectiveness of demonstrated management commitment to safety, effective safety staffing of projects and the importance of planning to safety will be described.
  4. Emphasis will be given to the importance of training and education, the importance of involving worker in the safety process and the need to provide proper recognition for the workers.
