The objective of this research is to ascertain the causes of accidents to native construction workers (masons) in Wukari, Nigeria and to enumerate the benefits of such safety practices. Forty questionnaires were carefully analysed using a four-point ranking strategy that is predicated on a mid-rank method. According to this research, shortages and lack of equipment have been the major causes of construction accidents. Masons climb ladders without even wearing their tops, boots or helmet. In fact, they are proud of this madness. Moreover, horseplay and lack of training have also significantly contributed to the accident cases. The major benefit of safety is that it raises the professional image of the construction workers and the contractor that employed them. This increases their chances of getting more projects. Government and well-meaning leaders in Taraba state are advised to enforce safety measures on the stubborn construction workers in Wukari.
