Abstract:
Adverse events occur in one-third of all hospital admissions, and the construction industry has one of the highest accident rates across all industries. This background highlights the criticality of researching principles that can enhance current safety organization and practices in both sectors. Accordingly, this article explores whether, and to what degree, different HRO safety principles can be found in the health care sector and the construction industry in Norway.
