Abstract: In Hong Kong, the rate of accidents from the building industry are higher than that of other countries. Most accidents not only cause injury to workers within building construction sites but also to the public and cause damages to the adjacent buildings. Therefore, the Buildings Department has implemented the site supervision plan system since December 1997 which objectives are to improve safety of the building works, to ensure building works complied with the Buildings Ordinance and allied regulations, and to minimize hazards involved in building works. Moreover, a system of safety management can be set out in building works. Therefore, all the building works can be commenced with adequate safety supervision. However, the effectiveness of the site supervision plan system will be affected by several factors including management aspect, technical aspect, financial aspect, time aspect and contractual aspect. Therefore, these factors should be considered prior to the preparation of the site supervision plan by the architects, structural engineers, surveyors and contractors. The success of the site supervision plan system should also be relied on the cooperation of all parties in the building industry. Thus, the above aspects will be discussed and analysed in this thesis so that the problems involved in the implementation of the site supervision plan system may be encountered and some suggested solutions will be given in this thesis as well. By this way, the site supervision plan system can be effectively implemented in the building industry so as to enhance the site safety performance. The rate of accident will thus be decreased. As a conclusion, the site supervision plan system should be supported by all parties and at all levels in the building industry in order that the system can be implemented successfully. Otherwise, the site supervision plan system will be treated as one stage of the plan submission process only.
