Adopting Criteria for Determining the Value of Compensation for Workers in the Construction Sector in Iraq As a Result of Work Accidents
Safety programs are a humanitarian message developed by government bodies to protect the human race from various accidents and injuries as well as protecting all property from machinery, equipment and various materials. Despite the interest of the countries of the world and especially the developed countries in the subject of occupational health and safety, this topic did not receive the attention required by the higher departments in most of our construction sites. This research aims to adopt criteria to determine the value of compensation of workers in the construction sector in Iraq as a result of work accidents. In this research several means were used to verify the value of compensation for workers in the construction sector in Iraq, such as using the questionnaire as a means of determining compensation criteria for injuries resulting from work accidents. The sample of the research was selected from engineers with experience in implementing construction projects and employees working in other specialties such as (judiciary, law and health), Where (31) persons who are directly related to the subject of the research. Some statistical methods (arithmetic mean, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, relative importance, truthfulness test, and stability) were carried out, through which the data were processed, and the results were interpreted accordingly. The value of financial compensation was extracted for the injuries suffered by workers as a result of work accidents (Working days) and according to criteria extracted based on the results of the questionnaire, in order to prepare stable standards of compensation that can be relied upon at any time and place, and for all construction projects in all Iraqi provinces. This research concludes that the lack of a clear system for compensating work injuries in construction projects and the adoption of compensation for personal and several considerations (regional and tribal) and others.
