Abstract


This paper aimed to investigate the perceptions of site engineers regarding safety climate in Gaza Strip construction sites. It also explored the relationship between personal characteristics of site engineers and safety climate. The adopted methodology was based on comprehensive questionnaire targeting site engineers. A total number of Eighty eight questionnaires were distributed; Seventy three questionnaires were received and analyzed to achieve the objectives. Site engineers responded positively towards safety climate. Almost half of site engineers have never received any safety training. The results indicated that only marital status and safety training received, among all personal characteristics, have an influence on safety climate. KEYWORDS: Safety, Construction Industry, Site Engineers, Gaza Strip.
