Framework for Improving Safety Compliance of Construction Workers in Australia

Thesis Abstract

The study applies the concept of differentiating safety compliance into deep compliance and surface compliance based on workers' safety compliance behavior and aims at proposing a framework to improve safety compliance of construction workers in Australia by identifying the influential factors and their effects on construction workers' deep and surface compliance, respectively.

Why my research is important/Impacts

This study will gain theoretical contributions by shedding light on investigating the antecedents of deep and surface safety compliance in the construction industry and will provide practical implications as understanding this framework can help construction workers achieve improved safety performance by enhancing deep compliance or reducing surface compliance.
