    Abstract

    This paper argues that in order to change construction safety culture and further improve construction safety performance, construction safety research needs to look beyond the traditional research methods and processes, which are generally supported by standard surveys and/or interviews for data collection. This paper presents a research proposal and preliminary results in which the principles of design thinking, in combination with knowledge co-production processes, are applied to the development of an integrated construction safety model. In such a co-production research process, the key stakeholders are engaged from the beginning of the research, and their knowledge and perspectives are constantly fed back to the research as it progresses.
