2. In India the construction industry is the second largest
employer next to agriculture whereas it is next to the road
accidents in our country.
The number of fatalities occurring from construction work
in the industry is quite disturbing and fall of person from
height and through openings are the major causes for
Due to the advancement in technology & engineering
there are improvements & innovations in the construction
safety management. With strong planning, effective
implementation and continual training with focused safety
management a good safety record could be achieved
comparable to international level.
DEFINATION OF CONSTRUCTION SAFETY
Construction Safety Management is defined as the precaution
i.e. carried out to avoid accidents while construction procedure is
DEFINATION of SAFETY
It is defined as freedom from danger or risk.
DEFINATION OF SAFETY ENGINEERING

the management to prevent accidents.
4. LEGAL ASPECT
• Innovation in the training methodologies to achieve higher
effectiveness of training among the contractor
• Developing and implementing behaviour based Safety
Program to improve orientation of work force towards
safety in work.
• Implementation of innovative engineering measures to
strengthen the safety requirements at design stages to
achieve safe working environment during construction.
• Training and certification, in Industrial Safety requirement,
of line managers and others responsible for construction
activity essentially to enhance their perception and
appreciation for industrial safety.
Workers’ compensation is one of the most pressing
problem areas in the construction industry. The industry,
due to the nature of work involved and the demand for
safety, is constantly challenged to improve its
management of workers’ compensation. The current
costs of coverage and administration are often thought to
be excessive in the industry, while the protection and
benefits provided to employees are sometimes
perceived as unsatisfactory. This paper was developed
from the findings of a Construction Industry Institute (CII)
research project that was conducted to identify improved
methods of management by contractors for their in-
house workers’ compensation insurance program.
6. The loss to a company by an accident can
be broken into:
lost working hours of an injured employee.
Cost of repair or replacement of property
damage, whether it is an equipment or an
element of the permanent construction.
Insurance premiums increase.
Rescheduling costs or even delay costs in

cost of the construction work, less time will
require for completing the task
While concluding my talk on this important topic
of construction safety, I would like to refresh you all that
each site poses its own unique challenges in terms of
industrial safety requirements which have to be tackled
by sincerity and professionalism. Modern management
and machinery are helpful in achieving these objectives
when used in a disciplined way.
