Abstract

This research specifically investigated the safety perceptions, attitudes, and behavior of construction workers and the management of safety practices. By analyzing its results, this study demonstrates that a majority of construction companies in Sri Lanka that were considered in the study have very little risk awareness and that they do not consider health and safety as important issues. The aim of this research was to understand from the data gathered and by analyzing the mechanism of injuries, the value of a Health and Safety Policy and prevent preventable accidents and illnesses by ensuring a good reporting system.
