The Power To Save A Life

As we discussed last time, the resource-loaded schedule represents a project manager’s most valuable tool for understanding and controlling the time and money requirements on any given project. With a continued focus on schedule importance, this article seeks to understand the correlation between schedule pressure and safety performance. More specifically, does a protracted or compressed schedule contribute to an increase in recordable injuries, near misses or safety incidences?

10 reasons your project is behind schedule

Unfortunately many construction projects are completed late. Invariably this negatively impacts the contractor’s reputation and costs both the contractor and their customer money. Often the contractor has to pay penalties for finishing late and they incur additional costs to remain longer on the project. The customer receives access to their facility late and usually faces additional costs for supervising the project for a longer period.

A well prepared schedule which is regularly updated allows us to detect early when a project is running late.
