Abstract: This study considered how to approach the safety consciousness levels of workers at construction sites. Despite, the many studies on how to improve safety on construction sites, the research in this area should be reoriented as construction accidents have only increased, so far. This means that a different approach should be taken at construction sites. Therefore, this study focused on improving worker’s safety consciousness and encouraging their own spontaneous safe actions according to an emotional approach based on different aspects of previous attempts and results. The questionnaire in this survey was designed to consider several factors including: excavator bucket safety, 100% tie-off while working at height, touch-and-call, electrical inspection, lifting gear inspection, life lines on scaffolding using tag lines for lifting work and incidents caused either by the government/contractors or due to worker’s fault. The questionnaire was prepared using a nut technique with contents related to incident prevention. The result of the questionnaire analysis related to the hooking of safety belts during hazardous operations at a height showed that the more workers wore safety belt rings, the more they wore two rather than one. As a result, worker’s safety training is expected to be planned for groups that are not in a position to sue and those with <10 years of experience and safety education. The planning of joint training for lifting worker groups and electricians to ensure parallel cooperative safety is considered a rising factor to increase effectiveness. It is determined that lifting worker teams and scaffolding worker teams can be organized into customized cooperative safety training teams.
