Construction workers are frequently exposed to various types of injury-inducing hazards. A number of injury prevention interventions
have been proposed, yet their effectiveness is uncertain.
To assess the effects of interventions to prevent injuries in construction workers.
We searched the Cochrane Injuries Group’s specialised register, CENTRAL,MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO,OSH-ROM(including
NIOSHTIC and HSELINE), Scopus, Web of Science and EI Compendex to September 2011. The searches were not restricted by
language or publication status. The reference lists of relevant papers and reviews were also searched.
Randomised controlled trials, controlled before-after (CBA) studies and interrupted time series (ITS) of all types of interventions for preventing fatal and non-fatal injuries among workers at construction sites.
Data collection and analysis
Two review authors independently selected studies, extracted data and assessed study quality. For ITS, we re-analysed the studies and used an initial effect, measured as the change in injury-rate in the year after the intervention, as well as a sustained effect, measured as the change in time trend before and after the intervention.|
|Description: ||This review is published as a Cochrane Review in the Cochrane Database 2. Cochrane Reviews are regularly updated as new evidence emerges and in response to comments and criticisms, and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews should be consulted for the most recent version of the Review.|
