Abstract

The safety status of construction workers has been considered a promising research domain for the safety improvement of the construction industry. In this study, safety consciousness (SC) and safety citizenship behavior (SCB) of construction workers were tested in terms of the difference among various workloads, which was measured by “weekly working hours” in this study. Over 161 respondents were involved in a questionnaire survey. To explore the relationships of different workloads with SC and SCB statistically, analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted by using SPSS 24. For the results, a significant correlation was observed among different workloads in terms of SC and SCB. The improper workloads will lead to poor SC and SCB of construction worker. In addition, further recommendations were provided to optimize the reasonable working hour of construction workers.
