Abstract

Safety climate is a construct reflecting the true priority of safety within an organization, and it has long been applied as a reliable predictor of safety performance (e.g. accident rates and occupational injuries). With advancement in technology, there is increasing use of advanced technologies in the construction industry for enhanced productivity and reduced cost as well as improved quality and safer work environment. However, there have been no studies so far examining the role of workers’ acceptance of construction technologies in accident involvement, despite their frequent interaction with a wide variety of construction technologies in construction workplaces. This study aims at identifying the relationship between safety climate and safety performance for construction management personnel in Hong Kong, with technology acceptance as a mediator. The results showed the perceived usefulness of construction technologies serve as a mediator in the underlying mechanism of the indirect relationship between the safety climate of an organization and the safety performance of the construction management. Also, perceived ease of use was found to exert an indirect effect on safety performance mediated by perceived usefulness. According to these results, three relevant recommendations for improving the safety performance of construction management personnel have been made.
