What Makes a Project Safe? Identifying the Impacts Factors Have on the Safety Performance of a Construction Site through Use of Artificial Neural NetworksDownload
What makes a construction project safe? This question prompted this research project. The goal was to identify factors and quantify their impact on the safety performance of construction projects. The first step in achieving this goal was to research key performance indicators in the area of...
Construction sites are the place where personnel and equipment work closely. In such workplaces, human movement dynamically adapts to the surrounding circumstances which are congested and continually changing. Acquisition of worker trajectories and measurement of physical value of workplaces,...
Background: Defining what constitutes a resident care unit in nursing home research is both a conceptual and practical challenge. The aim of this paper is to provide evidence in support of a definition of care unit in nursing homes by demonstrating: (1) its feasibility for use in data collection,...
The Detection and Causality Assessment of Adverse Events Related to Natural Health Product Use in Community Pharmacies through the Implementation of Active Surveillance.Download
Background: Natural health products (NHP) are widely used by the public. Since NHPs are pharmacologically active products, their ability to cause adverse reactions (AR) is present and well-documented. Currently employed passive surveillance systems are not well-equipped to detect NHP adverse...
Hooked end steel fibers were included between 0~1% by volume to provide enhanced shear resistance to three different types of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) namely, a regular concrete mix, a lightweight aggregate mix and a high strength mix. The test results at the material scale showed a...
Background: Current vertebroplasty practices significantly vary due to differences in perceived effectiveness and safety of this interventional approach. Objectives: To assess the efficacy and safety of Percutaneous Vertebroplasty in relieving pain due to osteoporotic vertebral compression...
The objective of this thesis study is to identify factors that influence Alberta food processors' food safety decisions. Data for this study were collected in a 2008 survey of Alberta food processors. It is hypothesized that pressures from government, industry, and consumers influence...
Background: The context of healthcare organizations such as hospitals is increasingly accepted as having the potential to influence the use of new knowledge. However, the mechanisms by which the organizational context influences evidence-based practices are not well understood. Current measures...
