EVALUATION OF FACTORS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO OCCURRENCE OF ACCIDENTS AT CONSTRUCTION SITES IN NAIROBI COUNTY

George Otiki Makori , Prof. Edward George Mamati, Prof. John Bosco Njoroge

Abstract: In Kenya, the construction industry accounts for 5% of the country GDP and employs about 1 million people with an estimated annual wage bill of K.sh. 3.2 billion. Despite the highlighted gains of the sector, there are negative attributes associated with construction work as the International Labor Organization estimates at least 60,000 fatal accidents occur each year on construction sites around the world. There was hence a need to evaluate factors that contribute to occurrence of accidents at construction sites in order to avail much needed information that can help minimize accidents. Occurrence of accidents at building construction sites in Nairobi County was modelled against technical factors, skills, working environment, occupational health and safety practices. Thirty project sites were purposively sampled and evaluated.
