The purpose of this study is to examine the factors affecting safety management in the Malaysian construction industry, as well as to highlight the importance of safety management in construction industry. The industry has contributed significantly to the economic growth of the country. Nonetheless, when construction safety management is not implemented systematically, accidents will happen and this will affect the economic growth of the country. This study put the safety management in construction project as one of the most important elements for project performance and success. The main focus of this study is building construction industry in Malaysia. The research started with gathering information through literature review about factors that might affect the standards of safety in construction industry, as well as importance of safety management in construction industry. Then, a study questionnaire was prepared based on the literature review. Once the questionnaire prepared, pilot survey has been conducted to improve and refine the main questionnaire.
