Abstract

Accidents are social and economic evils. These are essentially a human problem in which the entire human force is directly or indirectly involved. In construction projects, every year large number of workers dies and seriously injured due to accidents. Accidents are not only costly but also a ghastly affair too. No amount of monetary compensation can restore a lost limb to the worker or the lost life to his family. The mental torture and agony of an incapacitated worker are unbearable to him and to his family. The gravity of this situation necessitates the creation of awareness on a good safety system and the proper implementation of safety legislations relevant to the construction industry. This project work deals with the major reasons for increasing the rate of accidents in the construction projects, especially in the civil construction projects including high rise buildings, in Kerala and the status of implementation of the important statutory requirements pertaining to construction industry are reviewed. This project work done by the data collection of safety matters from the selected projects, interviews with the site management personnel and the workforce, work site inspection, discussion with the top management personnel, discussion with the concerned statutory authorities, and the study about the relevant provisions given in the statutory requirements. This project work includes the study and analysis of the safety performance level of the selected construction projects by the nationally and internationally accepted norms and relevant safety standards, rules and regulations. The output of the project work definitely gives the clear picture of the reasons behind the accidents in the construction field and what exactly we should do to prevent the same.
