  Identification Of Hazards And Safety Factors During The Construction Of A High Rise Building

Ranjan Kumar Banik

Hazard identification is done through physical investigation, interview of the personnel involved in the construction process and data collection. It has been found different types of hazards like physical, chemical, biological, social and safety issues are involved in excavations, scaffolds, roof work, maintenance and cleaning works. Most of these are ignored during construction.
