    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;The construction industry is inherently risky, with a substantial number of accidents. Moreover, most construction firms aims at completing projects on time, especially with different projects at hand thereby neglecting the safety aspect of the workers. In most construction companies, adequate concentration is not allocated to the areas of health and safety and this has been a great problem over the years. To support in addressing this issue, this work planned with the aim to recommend measures and strategies for managing safety on construction sites. Data collected was analyzed with the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) and the Relative Importance Index (RII) was also used in grading. It was therefore disclosed from the findings that poor planning at site, unsafe working conditions with others are some of the major causes of accident at site. Construction companies should consider the need for special training for workers and also to create a group of internal health and safety monitory experts were some of the recommendations made.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
