Abstract

A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle.

The objective of this research is to determine the worker’s level of
awareness on safety and health in bridge construction, to identify the main safety precautions taken by the construction workers in bridge construction and to determine the major barriers faced to implement safety and health in bridge construction. Review of literature was conducted and a questionnaire survey was used to obtain the information needed.
