Abstract

Past research on construction project safety has mainly been focused on safety risks, safety
culture, and safety system development. This research aims to reveal project manager skills that
could influence project safety performance. It is proposed that project managers need to have four
essential skills, namely conceptual, human, political, and technical skill. Through a comprehensive
review of relevant literatures, this research argues that project manager skills influence project
manager’s safety leadership, which ultimately influence project safety performance. A theoretical
framework has been developed and future research will focus on collecting empirical data to test
these relationships.
