Sažetak
Bangladeshi construction industry suffers
more safety issues than other developing countries in the
world. Among many of these, accidents at the construction
site go far beyond and shape a horrific figure of death
every year. The aims of this study are to identify and prioritize
the causes of accidents. This study also analyses
and discusses causes of accident at the construction site
in Bangladesh. A widespread literature review and open
discussion took place to identify the causes and design
the questionnaire. The questionnaire-based survey was
used to elicit the attitude of four stakeholders such as
workers, owners, consultants and contractors towards the
causes of accident. Mean and relative importance index
(RII) were used to determine the rank of causes, and Statistical
Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) 23 was used
to perform the data validation test. This study identifies 77
causes under 14 major groups and ranked them based on
the mean and RII. The top five major groups of causes are
management-, consultant-, technology-, labour- and contractor-
related causes. The top five causes are unawareness
of safety-related issue, lack of personal protective
equipment, lack of safety eliminating/avoiding design,
unfit equipment, lack of knowledge and training on
equipment. This study will help the project participants
and authorities to know and understand the various characteristics
and linkage of causes of construction accidents
to improve the construction safety management. It contributes
to the body of knowledge, as it reveals for the first
time the causes of accidents
in the Bangladeshi construction
industry.
