Abstract

Safety issues are considered as the major concerns in the construction industry. Despite the rapid advancement of technology, it is revealed that the rate of the fatality in the construction industry is extremely high. One of the factor that contribute to the fatality is the collapse accident at the site. The aim of this paper is to determine the main factors of collapse accident at the construction site and investigate the main attributes of safety practices as a prevention tool for collapse accident at construction site and finally develops the safety framework for collapse accident at the site in improving the construction site management. A questionnaires survey was carried out practically with 30 respondents in the construction sector. All the data is analyzed using SPSS Software version 23.0 using ranking analysis based on mean and standard deviation value. The results found that majority of the total respondents agreed that the most critical main causes of collapse accidents are unique nature of the industry, human element, management and unsafe equipment. Besides, the safety practices attributes were matched with suitable main causes by followed the result from synthesised of literature review. The main cause of collapse accident and the safety practices attributes as a prevention tools for collapse accident can be determine and from all of the findings, a safety practices conceptual framework for collapse accidents at construction sites were develop as a guideline to construction practitioners especially for the contractors to monitor and take action in the future construction activities to reduce collapse accidents in generally as one of the imposed safety at the construction sites especially in the building and infrastructure works.
