The construction industry has remained as one of the most dangerous industries worldwide. There is a need to integrate safety into decision making and practices in construction organisations if safety performance is to be improved. This paper contends that strategic safety management, which involves the acts of balancing the science and art of safety management, is a way forward to achieve the desired integration and continuous improvement. In this paper an integrated strategic safety management framework is proposed to help construction organisations develop, implement, and evaluate their safety strategies.
