Abstract

Accidents are common problems on construction sites globally. The occurrence of these accidents usually leads to loss of time and productivity of site personnel, payments for treatment of the injured and burial expenses for the dead. Previous studies identified poor communication of information on Health and Safety as one of the major causes of accidents on construction sites. This study examined and analyzed the strategies for communication. Mean and standard deviations were used to analyze the strategies. The opinions of supervisors and operatives were tested through an independent t-test and Spearman’s rank correlation. Findings revealed project briefings, operating procedures, and safety manuals as the most frequently used communication strategies. No significant differences exist between the two groups of respondents in their rankings. The correlation coefficient revealed a positive relationship. In other words, respondents concurred in their opinions regarding these communication strategies. This paper, therefore, recommends the adoption of significant strategies identified in this study. In addition, future research can be conducted in other countries in order to explore the research area globally.
