Abstract

Personal and Project Safety are crucial in structural construction, whereas extensive studies have been conducted in the past on personal safety, very little is known about project safety. This study evaluated operatives’ attitude to safety in construction and its effect on structural specifications adherence. Specifically, determined attitude to safety, and relationship between attitude to safety, supervision and project structural specifications adherence. The study adopted survey to collect data. It sampled 110 participants from 8public and 14 private ongoing projects in Ghana. A convenient random sampling was adopted to administer questionnaire. In total, 101operatives responded to the questionnaire. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential- ANOVA, student ‘t’ test, Pearson’s correlation and regression. Results showed that respondents had good attitude to safety, and significant positive relationship exists between attitude to safety and project structural specification adherence which was further strengthened by safety supervision.
