Abstract: Generally, where a deep excavation is concerned, risk factors have to be taken into consideration throughout the project as a negative outcome of risk may cause injury or death to workers or damages to properties if it is not well managed during the construction. Risk management is a process in identifying risk, evaluating and minimising the potential effects in a risk. Literature review, Workplace Safety and Health (Risk Management) Regulations, Code of Practice on WSH (Risk Management) Regulations and Code of Practice (COP) for safety in trenches, pits and other excavated areas were conducted to develop interview questionnaire which investigates on the current risk management strategy practice in the construction industry. Case studies were conducted to provide information about risk management and risk involved in deep excavation through the viewpoints of the professionals. The professionals, who are involved in deep excavation projects, from the construction industry were asked for interviews. The professionals are positive about having risk management strategy and safe work practices at workplace as it provides systematic and best practices especially when the project involves deep excavation works. Finally, recommendations are made based on the interview results and case studies. The organisations are encouraged to implement a formal risk management system and mitigation plan for hazards where all the employees should aware of the importance of having risk management system. In addition, proper adequate training should be provided to all the workers.
