Abstract

The industry of construction is considered a strong economic factor and one of the most dangerous industries. This industry involves a wide range of activities that subject all employees from experts to non-skilled workers to intense undesired situations. Everybody is vulnerable to the hazards, risks, and dangers of this massive industry. Insufficient health and safety management, damage to construction, and constructed environments can also lead to increased accidents and injuries. Accidents not only have consequences of significant suffering and pain, but they are also marginalizing efficiency, time, productivity, negatively impact the environment and overall adding the construction costs. The results of the study will help to identify the essential factors that cause rising rates of risks in construction projects. By identifying these causes, emphasis on environmental, health and safety management will help in implementing awareness to all of those participating in the construction projects. This study demonstrates the criteria and guidelines for the identification, to determine the controlling environmental effects and health and safety hazards at construction project worksites. Furthermore, attempt to explain the techniques of decreasing hazards by the development of pre-construction planning and provide adequate controlling equipment for executing a safer, more profitable construction project from start to the end. Also, in the study suggestions are given for management that they must provide adequate health and safety training for the entire workforce, a supervised workplace by professional site safety managers and operators that will attempt to reduce health and safety hazards at sites.
