This paper discussed an empirical research on workplace safety management performance on construction sites in China. Eleven factors that correlate closely with onsite safety management performance were identified and proved to be useful in other safety related studies. A literature review was first made to identify and categorize hazards in routine safety management on construction sites. A questionnaire survey was then conducted on 82 construction sites. The factor analysis method was utilized and 11 factors was extracted and interpreted. Finally, identified factors were used in other statistical methods to make more findings.
