Arabic Abstract

تناقش هذه الرسالة نتائج بحث أجري عن عملية قياس أداء السلامة لمقاولي التشييد الصناعي في المملكة العربية السعودية والمعايير والعوامل المؤثرة في ذلك . وتبدأ الرسالة في مرحلتها الأولى بعرض وتحليل العوامل المستخدمة حالياً في قطاع التشييد والمؤثرة في عملية قياس أداء السلامة . وقد اعتمدت هذه المرحلة على بعض المراجع بالإضافة إلى مقابلات أجريت مع مسؤولي السلامة لدى المقاولين . وفي المرحلة الثانية تم تومزيع استبيان على (25) خمسة وعشرين شركة من شركات قطاع التشييد الصناعي في المنطقة الشرقية من المملكة العربية السعودية . ويتكون هذا الاستبيان من (20) معياراً أساسياً و (85) معياراً فرعياً . وقد تم اجراء تحليل كمي ونوعي على هذه المعايير ثم رتبت هذه المعايير حسب أهميتها في عملية القياس ، وذلك وفقاً لنتائج الاستبيان . أما في المرحلة الثالثة فقد تم استخدام نتائج الاستبيان في تطوير برنامج عن طريق الحاسب الآلي لقياس أداء السلامة . ولتحسين مستوى أداء السلامة في التشييد . واختتمت الرسالة بتقديم مجموعة من الاقتراحات ومواضيع للبحوث المستقبلية .

English Abstract

This thesis presents a structured and systematic approach that will help the industrial constructino contractor in Saudi Arabia to monitor and measure his construction safety performance. The research began with an analysis of the factors which influence the process of safety performance measurement as it is currently practiced in general by the construction industry. This analysis is based on a review of the literature and formal interviews with the contractors' officials responsible for construction safety. In the second phase, a survey was distributed to 25 Industrial Contractors in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. The intent of the survey was gather data on those significant factors which influence the safety performance measurement process. The survey consisted of 20 main factors and 85 sub-factors. Quantitative statistical analyses of these data were performed. Then, the main factors and sub-factors were ranked by their level of importance based on the survey results and analysis. In the third phase, a PC-based evaluation tool for determining the safety performance of construction contractor was developed. Data arrived during the second phase was utilized to build the evaluation tool. The tool uses a dimensional weighting approach for measuring safety performance. When applied in practice, this PC-based tool can provide industrial construction contractors in Saudi Arabia with a valuable device for safety performance measurement and monitoring. Finally, in order to improve the measurements of the construction safety performance, a set of recommendations was made and topics for future research were suggested.
