It is considered that many safety hazards were “designed” into construction projects. Safety is evaluated from designer’s perspective to come out with best practices in order to achieve safer construction. Awareness of designers about construction safety and self-responsibility are also tested by conducting questionnaires survey, as well as the safety practices being implemented to achieve construction safety. However there are several factors that could significantly affect the adoption of safety practices such as motivation, knowledge on the concept and etc. The level of significance of those factors will also be tested.
