Abstract: Accidents are a major public health concern, resulting in an estimated 1.2 million deaths and 50 million injuries worldwide each year. UAE in particular experiences a high rate of such accidents. Research on road safety has been conducted for several years, yet many issues still remain undisclosed and unsolved. Specifically, the relationships between drivers’ characteristics and road accidents are not fully understood. In this work, we started by collecting a dataset between 2011 and 2013 for construction sites. The accident occurs in the period of 2011 to 2013 cause more equipment damage in the construction site or in store/workshop. The comparison data from 2011 to 2013 shows that the incident rate decrease from 80% to 10 % due to the proper monitory from the higher authorities of the concern department in UAE.
