Abstract: A Risk, high or low, is a chance which can hamper the growth of an organization and construction industry is no exception. Every construction project needs to implement efficient construction project management techniques for successful completion of work, and no such technique will be complete unless it addresses the various types of risks like Labor, Financial, Logistic, Socio-political, Environmental and Health & Safety risk etc. Keeping these risks in view, a questionnaire is prepared and distributed among different scale of construction companies so that data can be obtained from different levels of project management employees such as Labor Contractor, Engineer, Middle-level management & High-level management. Results obtained through questionnaires were analyzed using RII (Relative importance index), an empirical method and priority of risks were arranged according to Relative importance index in project management. The preventive and safety measures are taken at different stages in order to reduce risk in CPM.
Keywords: Risk, Construction Project Management, Relative Importance Index (RII), Safety.
