ABSTRACT

The construction industry is considered to be one of the most significant industries in terms of its impact on health and safety of the working population. However, the construction industry is also recognized as the most hazardous. Being so, it is then important that more measures are taken to address the safety issue as quite a number of accidents which could have been prevented happen on sites. This research sought to examine the factors affecting implementation of surveillance technology in minimizing safety risks in construction projects. The specific objectives of this study were to find out the extent to which the project environment affects implementation of surveillance technology, to examine how project team characteristics affect implementation of surveillance technology, to assess how organizational culture affects implementation of surveillance technology, to establish how project resources affect implementation of surveillance technology in minimizing safety risks in construction projects. The theories that guided this study were domino theory, reinforcement theory, organizational culture theory, systems theory and the modern theory of accident .The research design adopted was an exploratory research design, targeting building projects under construction in Nairobi, a list of storeyed buildings from the National construction authority database formed the sampling frame. Quantitative data analysis involving both descriptive and inferential statistics was used to analyze the data. The findings of the study concluded that project environment, organizational culture and project resources influence implementation of surveillance technology in minimizing safety risks on construction sites, these variables exhibited strong and statistically significant relationships. The study could not establish the influence of project team characteristics since the variable was found to have a weak and statistically insignificant relationship.

Key words: Project environment, Team characteristics, Organizational culture, Project resources
