Abstract

The rural construction industry has contributed significantly to economic growth and development. Therefore, Health and Safety (H&S) is a major concern to developing countries due to the high number of accidents that occur and the consequences this has to workers, organisations, society and countries. This research aims to study the construction workers' performance in rural projects through H&S strategies in the construction industry. lt focuses on construction parties working in active rural sites of Sri Aman, Sarawak. The objective of this research is to study the factors affecting the workers' performance, to assess satisfaction level of H&S culture in construction site between workers performance, and to identify strategies to improve H&S in rural projects. A questionnaire is used to collect a wide range of opinions among Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) construction workers and practitioners. The reviews of the related literature are the first step in obtaining information from previous related studies and functioned as the framework to guide the design of the questionnaire. This research showed that the high rates of accidents in rural projects were due to several common factors such technical factors, management factors, site conditions, scheduling issues, changes and omissions, labour characteristics, external conditions, tools-and equipment, md(erial factors, and safety factors. Thus, the findings led to several effective ways from both parties and construction workers to improve workers' performance through H&S strategies in rural projects.
