dc.description.abstract Building Construction sector is one of the major sectors in the construction industry in Sri Lanka. As in other sectors, building construction workers also have to face various types of hazards and accidents. Due to these accidents, there is a significant lost to the industry in terms of valuable lives, wasted time and cost overruns and these adversely affect the reputation of the construction industry. The construction includes the different specific areas such as building, road, tunnel, bridges, harbors, reservoirs etc. But, the most researchers have carried out research in the general area of construction without any separation. Further the Health and Safety of Building construction have not been covered properly by the researchers in the past. However, one of the different areas of the industry, building construction has become the most hazardous industry compared to others. This study identifies the global practices to reduce the accident probability in Building construction projects. It also identifies the accidents that frequently happen, causes for those accidents, and the impact of those accidents on the on Building Construction projects in Sri Lanka. And also from the research it is possible to investigate the applicability of globally identified best practices in Sri Lankan Building Construction Projects. The main objective of this research was to develop a guideline for Sri Lankan Building Construction projects, which would be useful in reducing accidents probability in order to minimize various losses in Sri Lanka building construction projects. Currently there is no proper research carried out regarding this issue to reduce accidents probability and minimize losses in Sri Lankan Building construction projects. Thus, this research is useful to fill that research gap in the Sri Lankan Building Construction Sector. en_US
