Abstract

Construction logistics is really important as one of the enablers to support rapid development and economy in Malaysia. Heavy trucks used in construction logistics provide the ability to move more and bigger materials for development and manufacturing. However, it caused many problems, particularly in safety aspects, to the community. This study was done to investigate the safety measures practised in construction logistics activities by using indicators from construction safety and health programs, the current state and recommend suggestion for improvement in construction logistics activities. Comprehensive literature review has been carried out to gather the information and deeper understanding on stakeholders in construction logistics, impact of the activities and the concept of construction logistics safety and health. Qualitative study was chosen because in depth opinion and information of the related stakeholders needed to be discussed and clarified, which can only be obtained from one to one interview. Interview sessions were held with construction logistics related authorities such as MBIP, CIDB and JKJR, as well as the industry players, KOMEJ and CRESCENDO, and also representatives from the concerned communities from Ulu Choh and Lima Kedai. Data obtained were transcript, coded and interpreted into results and findings. Results from the study shows that it is proven that Johor Bahru experienced some negative impacts from construction logistics activities, and to lessen those problems, several improvements of safety programs are needed, in term of enforcement, information sharing and employees training. In conclusion, this study has successfully achieved its objectives, and recommendation for future study were included for better contribution to knowledge in the future.
