Safety at road and railway works : an interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det finns regler och föreskrifter som reglerar hur säkerhet och arbetsmiljö ska beaktas vid väg- och spårarbeten, men trots detta inträffar årligen ett antal olyckor och mer eller mindre allvarliga incidenter. För att få en bild av hur säkerhets- och arbetsmiljörelaterade frågor hanteras vid upphandling, planering och genomförande av underhållsverksamheten av vägar och järnvägar har ett begränsat antal intervjuer med relevanta aktörer genomförts. Intervjuerna genomfördes med upphandlare och projektledare på Trafikverket, entreprenörer samt fackliga representanter hos fackförbundet SEKO. På vägsidan intervjuades även trafikingenjörer hos Trafikverket. Med hjälp av intervjuerna kunde ett antal problemområden identifieras, varav några var:

  • Bristande spridning av information om nya regelverk till alla berörda i alla led
  • Otydliga rutiner för egenkontroller, rapportering, åtgärder vid konstaterade brister, uppföljning och återkoppling.
  • Bristfälliga rutiner för rapportering av olyckor och incidenter samt för åtgärder, uppföljning och återkoppling i samband med dessa
  • Trafikverket ställer numera kompetenskrav istället för utbildningskrav, vilket gör det mer komplicerat att kontrollera att kraven är uppfyllda
  • Det kan vara svårt att säkerställa kompetensen hos inhyrd personal och då främst vid arbetstoppar.
Abstract [en]

There are rules and regulations that govern how working environment and safety are considered for road and railway works, but despite this a number of accidents and more or less serious incidents happens every year. To get an idea of how safety and working environment related issues are handled in the procurement, planning and implementation of maintenance activities of roads and railways a limited number of interviews with relevant actors have been performed. Purchasers and project managers at the Swedish Transport Administration (STA), as well as entrepreneurs and a union representative at the union SEKO, were interviewed for both the road and the railway side. For the road side, traffic engineers at STA were also interviewed. Based on the results from the interviews a number of problem areas could be identified, of which some are:

  • Dissemination of information about new regulations to all parties at all levels
  • Unclear procedures for self-monitoring, reporting, action on identified deficiencies, follow up and feedback
  • Inadequate procedures for reporting of accidents and incidents as well as for actions taken, follow up and feedback of these
  • The STA nowadays sets skill requirements instead of requirements on specific education/courses, making it more complicated to ensure that the requirements are met
  • It can be difficult to ensure the competence of temporary staff, mainly at work peaks.
