Abstract: This study is concerned with the assessment of risk for major construction activities. Risk has been defined as a measure of the probability, the severity, and the exposure of all hazards of an activity. Risk management is at the core of any business or organization, and construction industry and construction companies are no exception to this. This is central to any business regardless of size, activity, or sector. Construction industries can lose substantial sums of money as a result of failure to identify and evaluate risk in time. Industries may even forego their opportunity to take advantage of potentially beneficial opportunities arising in the course of their activities if risks are not recognized in good time. Risk management is, therefore, as much about looking ahead to identify further opportunities as it is about avoiding or mitigating losses.
