The construction industry has one of the most dangerous working environments among various professions. Workers in construction investment projects account for a large component of the costs, and there are many risks to labour safety. Therefore, ensuring that workers are not injured and aiming for zero labour accidents is a significant imperative and challenge for project managers and construction workers. Ensuring safety during construction work contributes to the success of a project. This paper presents a study of worker attitudes toward labour safety. The research was conducted by using an expert interview approach and questionnaire survey in order to find out which factors influence construction worker attitudes about labour safety conditions. Factor analysis found five factors that affect the attitudes of workers toward labour safety: 1) organisational policy; 2) communication; 3) risk acceptance; 4) psychology; 5) equipment monitoring and management.
