Purpose-Work on construction sites involve individuals with diverse character, temperament, age, physical strength, culture, religion, and experience level. A good number of these individuals are also alleged to involve themselves in substance and alcohol abuse due to the physically demanding nature of their work. These could promote the prevalence of violence on construction sites which could in turn affect safety on construction sites. However, there is a lack of empirical insight into the effect of violent behaviour and unsafe behaviour on construction sites. This study therefore pioneers an empirical inquiry into the relationship between violent behaviour and unsafe behaviour on construction sites. Design/methodology/approach-Seventeen (17) violent behaviours and fifteen (15) unsafe behaviours were measured on 12 construction sites among 305 respondents using a structured questionnaire. A total of 207 valid questionnaire responses were collected from site workers. Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) technique was used to examine the relationship between violent behaviour and unsafe behaviour. Findings-The results indicate that there is a significant positive relationship between violent behaviour and unsafe behaviour on construction sites.
