This paper identifies the critical factors that influence the attitudes of construction workers towards safe behaviour on construction sites. It studies these attitudes by using a research model that links three themes safety management implementation strategies, attitudes of workers about safety and behavioural factors displayed by construction workers. This model is used to frame the responses of 126 directly employed construction workers in 10 companies. Some 56 variables were identified as having a potential influence upon attitudes to safety. The initial data analysis found that 12 technical factors significantly correlated to the development of strong positive attitudes towards safety management. Secondorder analysis, using factor analysis, isolated five variables that had a major influence on safety attitudes. The five factors were organizing for safety supervision and equipment management, industry norms and culture, attitudes to risk taking and management behaviour.
