ANP safety performance model with relevant categories. A draft checklist of 42 hazards in 14 categories (site planning and housekeeping; management involvement; handling, storage, and use of materials; welding and cutting; concrete and concrete framework; crane and lifting equipment; electrical equipment; hand and power tools and machinery; working at height and protection against falling; personal protective equipment; traffic and transportation control; scaffolding and ladders; fire prevention; excavation, trenching, and shoring) were collected. (1996). Each cluster contains the elements, which are called the hazards. Yang et al. Next sections will introduce the methodology on frequency-adjusted importance index, ANP, and the data analysis parts. Papers will be reviewed by our unique system of double-blind review. This is because of the existence of interdependences and interaction between the factors. The Journal is devoted to the publication of original research including, but not limited to the following: Sustainable Construction (Green building; Carbon emission; Waste management; Energy saving) Construction life cycle management Construction informatics … A. Project Time Management (PTM) includes a number of planning and controlling processes that are recommended for complying with requirements related to project time. Scale definition for the importance and frequency levels for each hazard. Past literature conducted targeting the safety performance evaluation were focusing on identifying the observable hazards and evaluating their apparent effects. The study reported in this paper aimed at assessing the use of PTM processes and its relation with project schedule performance (i.e., timely completion). All animals involved in this study were treated in accordance with the ethical standards set forth by the institution at which the study was conducted. It also publishes detailed case studies, as well as short communications and discussions. Location of document Safety performance monitoring should be performed by all stakeholders to avoid injuries and fatalities in the construction sites.

The questionnaire link was sent out by emails or via professional networks worldwide. Topics include: construction material handling, equipment, production planning, specifications, scheduling, estimating, cost control, quality control, labor productivity, inspection, contract administration, construction management, computer applications, and environmental concerns. The main results came from international construction companied based in Qatar, the USA, Japan, Turkey, and Jordan. Table 1 presents the top forty-two hazards utilized in the study with their corresponding references. Construction sites are known for its complex environments where many unsafe acts and/or unsafe conditions exist [6].
