It is crucial toinvestigate case studies and analyze accident statistics to establish safetyand health culture in the construction industry, which exhibits high fatalityrates. However, it is difficult to find reliable and accurate constructionaccidents data in Turkeydue to inadequate accident reporting and recordkeeping system, which hindersstatistical safety research. Therefore, an independent database was generatedby using inspection reports in this research study. Data mining was performedwithin hundreds of accident reports in Aegean region between 2009 and 2010, and185 construction accident cases were selected for univariate analysis andcross-tabulation. Results of the analyses showed that several variablesdemonstrated high risk, where safety improvement efforts could be focused on.
