Abstract

Constructions accidents have led to many workers in Hong Kong seriously injure or even die every year. Huge sum of money has been spent on compensation by contractors. Lack of safety knowledge is one of the causes behind these accidents. While information technology has become part of the indispensible lives among youngsters and teenagers, it is foreseeable that construction workforce on site in the coming decade will meet certain level of computer skills and knowledge. With the help of information technology, geographical boundary in knowledge sharing among safety officers or relevant stakeholders from all over the world is removed. Faster knowledge sharing is also expected. Knowledge sharing among construction workforce in Hong Kong is still restricted in traditional face-to-face interaction. Use of information technology in construction companies is still piecemeal and limited on daily work communication. This paper aims to study the possible motivation in sharing construction safety knowledge inter and intra construction organizations.
