Abstract

Accidents are commonplace on construction sites. Over the years, improvement efforts have included studies aimed at identifying the causal factors in construction accidents in order that appropriate mitigation measures can be implemented. This chapter is focused on how a sequential exploratory mixed methods approach is used to examine the accident causal influence of construction project features and the extent of their impact on health and safety. The chapter offers insights into the rational process that leads to the selection of a mixed methods approach and, subsequently, the steps taken to operationalise the approach to address the research questions. It serves as a useful reference to guide other health and safety researchers in the selection and deployment of the sequential exploratory mixed methods research design to address similar or different research questions in construction accident causation issues.
