In Myanmar, construction industries carry on to become safety first. There are many hazards and risks in construction that can cause employee injuries and illnesses. In order to be safe, risk assessment technique is widely used in international but less in Myanmar. So this paper aims to help what kind of risks can occur and to know how to reduce these risks by using additional controls. Firstly, it is required to collect data. Therefore, three construction companies in Mandalay Myanmar are chosen. Hazards are obtained from the observed data. Questionnaires concerned with likelihood and severity are collected from the project engineers in these sites. The results from questionnaires are used to evaluate the risks. The evaluated risks are reviewed whether these are acceptable or additional controls are required to reduce risks. On the basis of outcome results, risk prioritization number charts can be obtained. Thus, this study can provide for developing necessary controls to reduce risks and to be safe for construction industries.
