C. Zero Injury Culture: Every new project creates a newly organized group of people with different perspectives and often divergent goals. Like men in a lifeboat, these individuals can remain divergent, to the detriment of the project or they can pull together.

The Zero Injury approach was pioneered by the Construction Industry Institute (CII), Austin, Texas. It has been used successfully by large construction companies on major projects and has helped improve the performance (bottom line profits) of every supporting contractor, including those that thought they were too small to make such improvements.

E. OCIP/CCIP management: The Owner Controlled Insurance Program (OCIP) and Contractor Controlled Insurance Program (CCIP) are becoming more popular in recent years. The Owner or Prime Contractor can initiate one of these by setting up insurance coverage for the entire project, hiring an administrator, establishing a loss control team structure and contractually binding all contractors and subcontractors to participate. If it is done well, it can provide seamless coverage financially. Success depends on a proactive safety and loss control program on the job-site, including orientation, training, inspections and frequent program reviews.
