It is now widely accepted that proper safety systems should be implemented on projects to reduce the risk of injury. A similar systematic approach should be adopted in relation to corruption. To minimize the risk of corruption on projects, public and private sector project owners should ensure that project anti-corruption systems are implemented on their projects which impact on all project phases and on all major project participants.
