We carried out an investigation to clarify the relationships between near-miss incidents and human errors based on actual incidents at telecommunication construction sites based on the findings of the previous report. We analyzed (1) the tendency of the age-specific report items of indoor and outdoor telecommunication construction sites and (2) the relationship of “slip and trip” to “work contents” and four mental and physical functions. In the18-30 year-old group engaged in indoor construction, there were many incidents involving “stepladder work” and reports in “the floor panel opening”. In the 31-50 year-old group, many incidents of “damage ca ble/loosening cable” and “improper connection and erroneous contact” were found. In the 18-30 year-old group engaged in outdoor construction, there were many incidents involving “fall” and “slip and trip”, and in the 51-60 year-old group and over 60 year-old group, there were many incidents of “while driving an automobile”. Among the four mental and physical functions, “step ladder work” during indoor construction had a close relationship with “work behaviour”, and also “work behaviour” and “feelings and emotion” had a close relationship with outdoor con struction sites. The results suggested the need to advance accident prevention education on the basis of data gained from actual near-miss incidents.
