Abstract

Any enterprise cannot operate on its own. Even a contractor can neither build nor operate on itself. Therefore, it has to be manned by the people who form the backbone of the enterprise, and it is their candid performance on which the success of the whole enterprise depends. Their knowledge and skills are to be scrutinized and analyzed so as to fit the right person in the right place. A large percentage of construction site accidents involve the negligence of someone other than an employee or employer. There are many causes for construction site accidents, including negligent and dangerous construction site practices. Safety management system identifies various hazards and risks present at the site and the safety studies are there identify measures to categorize and minimize or eliminate the risks since it is difficult to eliminate the hazard but the risks can be reduced up to certain level. Safety audit is carried out to ensure that unsafe acts and unsafe conditions are brought to a minimum level so that there is a safe work environment. The purpose of safety audit is to ensure that there are definitions and safe procedures for works and the set definitions and safe procedures are practiced. Safety Audit is a tool used by the management to promote and ensure the safe work procedures are followed in the premises.
