Construction in Malaysia is rapidly increase nowadays especially involving high rise construction. As tower cranes also extensively used for hoisting materials in high rise construction, its operation also increasingly involved in a high rise construction. The usage of tower crane at construction site also created several of risk and hazard that will cause the accident toward the construction workers and public surrounding. This paper is to identify the operation hazard that occurred during tower crane operation and to propose a safe operation guideline for tower crane operation. The study began with collecting relevant tower crane hazard through conducting survey questionnaire for respondents at selected 3 numbers of high rise construction project. Through the survey and site observation, it was found that a several type of accident and hazard involved during the operation of tower crane. From the result, risk rating has been conducted to establish a safe operation guideline for the tower crane operation.
