This thesis analyzes the safety performance of several U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) projects as they compare to the construction industry as a whole and to the Construction Industry Institute (CII) Member companies. Safety success on a construction project is measured by examining the Lost Workday Case Incident Rate (LWCIR), Recordable Incident Rate (RIR), and the Fatality Incident Rate (FIR). This thesis will endeavor to compare and contrast performance of the above groups based on these metrics. CII (a history can be found in the "Background" section) member companies endeavor to use many safety best practices on their projects. Extensive research by CII has shown that the most successful projects (with increased safety performance) have used many of these best practices. Several NAVFAC projects shall be reviewed to determine frequency of use of these best practices. Furthermore, the author will examine the NAVFAC guide specification and identify contractual requirements for use of best practices in the contractor's "Site Specific Safety Plan." Conclusions and recommendations are presented based on the results of the analysis
