Abstract

In Malaysia, construction companies have played a great role in the growth of the country’s economy over the years. However, there have been incidents of increasing injuries as a result of being exposed to accidents within the industry. Some studies in the construction field have shown that safety performance has been decreasing. Most of the construction activities carried out by the construction companies have been in dangerous situations thereby exposing the workers to minor and major injuries which may sometimes lead to death. As a result, the organizations may sometimes change the goals of the projects because of the accident, thus affecting the organisation’s level of advancement in the industry. To address the aforementioned issue, this paper aims to 1) investigate the significant relationship between workplace and building projects in Pahang construction projects, 2) investigate the significant relationship between materials and building projects in Pahang construction projects, and 3) investigate the significant relationship between equipment and building projects in Pahang construction projects. 132 construction companies that registered under the CIDB Malaysia among Kuantan, Malaysia construction companies were surveyed. PLS-SEM technique was used in this research to assess both the measurement and structural models. The results showed that equipment played a significant positive relationship on building projects among construction companies operating in Pahang, Malaysia.
