Abstract – Today there are numerous challenges are being faced by Indian construction Industries. Some are new to the industry, and some are centuries old. Many of these challenges are a direct result of construction operations, while others a result of indirect, peripheral activities. A surprising number of challenges are not construction issues but must be addressed and managed by the construction Contractor to ensure project success. Some of the construction issues include workforce considerations, safety, time constraints, and the changing nature of the work. Non-construction challenges that Contractor face that are part of the business landscape include legal issues, government regulations, environmental concerns, and socio-political pressures. It is critical that the Contractor understand the demanding realities they faces in the planning and control of EHSMS in construction operations.
