Abstract: The second largest industry in India is the construction industry. With improvement and advancement in the construction sector, the safety of the workers is very significant to have effective implementation of the project without any risks, delay and cost incur. So it is essential to assess the significant factors which impacts the successful execution of safety measures and practices in the construction site. For assessing it, various responses were collected from the experienced personnel with the help of a questionnaire listing 15 main factors. Likewise, 80 samples were collected with different demographic properties from various personnel in the construction sector. The collected data is analyzed with SPSS and AMOS software for factor analysis and model fit. Finally, a proactive solution for effective safety implementation is given.
