Understanding the inextricable link between safety, quality and productivity is a critical piece of knowledge for today's construction management professional. And it should be leveraged at all stages of a projects, from planning to programming and through the execution of the work.
A proper task analysis will:
- Account for all three elements: safety, quality and productivity
- include input from site personnel
- Include the information needed to make decisions on the site
- Be a workable plan
Remember that once you accept safety, productivity and quality are inextricably linked, you begin to realise that the data you harvest from your various site reports, such as reports of near misses or the need for constant rework, may also be able to fill in the blanks and tell a story about the overall progress and productivity on a project as well.
