The Epistemology of the Causes that Lead to Accidents on Sites: The Institutional and the Austrian Economics Approach
In this chapter, we aim to study the judges’ viewpoints, i.e. the viewpoints of those who must consider all the various items of evidence before they can construct a judgment bearing in mind the positions of all the various stakeholders. The judges may be relied upon, perhaps, to maintain an objective understanding of the causes of construction accidents. After this, various practitioners’ thoughts on what causes construction accidents are looked at. Their viewpoints are studied under the framework of Institutional and Austrian economics.
