Injury in this industry leads to death, serious occupational injuries, and wasted time due to its particular nature. Construction workshops are characterized by many special factors such as successive changes in work environment, reversal of teamwork, poor working conditions, exposure to different climates, high number of amateur workers and temporary troops. Hence, the analysis of occupational and safety risks in large construction workshops is a major step toward achieving the appropriate safety and a basis for safety management, forming part of the safety management system. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and analyzes the causes of accidents in construction projects with the risk management approach in the 22nd district of Tehran. So, 40 contractors, employers, consultants and workers were selected by Cochran formula to fill out the questionnaire. The risks identified in this study are through expert library studies including fire and explosions, falling buildings, falling from the scaffolding, collapse or collision with objects, electric shock and getting stuck between objects. The results of the risks and accidents ranking in construction projects in 22nd district of Tehran indicate that slipping, stuck between objects and fire and explosions ranked first to third in terms of the importance of risks and accidents. The risks of electric shock and falling from scaffolding have the least importance among these risks.
