    Abstract

    The construction industry is well known as the most dangerous industry among other industry as there are lots of accidents and injuries that happen. Some of the main factors that contribute to these are human behaviour, insecure construction site, the difficulties of works, dangerous machinery and equipment used on site, and unsafe safety culture. Therefore, this dissertation is to investigate safety management in construction industry in Malaysia. This topic was chosen because safety is very important in the construction industry as this industry is easily exposed to hazards and danger. Even though the Malaysia’s government has introduced so many standards and regulations, the rate of accident at a construction site is still high. Thus, the purpose of this dissertation is to identify how to minimize the risk and maximize the safety in the construction industry. An efficient safety management will help in reducing the number of accidents, fatalities and injuries that involves workers and properties. Safety awareness should become a culture among all the parties involves in the construction industry instead of being perceived as policies being forced on them.
