The objectives of this research are to evaluate the current status of safety management in construction, to identify factors affecting safety management, and to recommend safety management improvement in Cambodia. This research is focused on building construction projects. The questionnaire survey, staff interview and construction site observation techniques were designed for gathering the necessary data from local and international contractors companies. The results of research indicate that the current status of safety management in local construction companies is in the low level. It is required a lot of improvement. However, for the international construction companies, they employ better safety management. There are 12 elements of safety management status derived from project managers’ opinion such as the use of personal protection equipment, safety policy, and etc. The nine most important factors influencing safety management were identified such as budget for safety management, safety policy, safety regulations, and awareness of project managers. From contractors’ viewpoints, the recommendation for improving safety management in construction sites should be arranged by many participants such as government, owners, contractors, safety engineers, and workers.
