In order to manage the Construction Safety in a professional and due manner, it is of the key importance to have in place an Occupational Health and Safety Management System, consisting, similarly as a house project, of correct foundations as preparation, planning, procurement, properly set up rules and contractual relations, especially if a site of approx. 5,000 daily manpower is of a concern. Pillars of safe construction follow, i.e. education and training, inspections, communication and, last but not least, human behaviour. The purpose of the following article is to introduce the Human Behaviour Improvement Tools applied in the NPP Mochovce, completion process of Units 3&4, focusing on the implementation and the observance of the OH&S rules.
