Abstract: The study investigates the attitude of construction firms operating within Kano metropolis towards safety provision for workers on site. In achieving these objectives Investigatory Survey Research Approach Method (ISRAM) was adopted and used in order to obtain quantitative and qualitative data. Questionnaires were distributed to various construction companies within Kano metropolis, the totals of eighty (80) copies were distributed and fifty eight (58) copies were retrieved. Data collected were found suitable. And were analyzed using Software statistical package (SPSS). From the analysis the result revealed that there is negligence in the attitude of construction companies towards safety and stricter regulations have to been forced. Dissemination of information on safety techniques would reduce accident on site and increase the worker’s moral for better performance in turns to reducing overrun cost. Ineffectiveness of government policy on safety measure especially in construction work was found to have contributed to low productivity by workers on site, since they don’t have access to any claim even when accident occurred on sites. Archaeologists have discovered thousands of bodies buried in the foundation of the wall. Bodies were also used to make up the wall’s thickness. It has been estimated that millions of workers lost their lives due to accident, intense physical labor, starvation and disease. This is in order of magnitude of life per meter of wall length. Therefore, safety in mission statement of large construction firms or companies is not common (Amaechi, 1990). Execution is supported by correlation; some of these correlations were by organizations such as Independent Project Analysis (IPA). It has been statistically proven that there is correlation between good front end loading and safety performance of good front end loading.
