An evaluation of Health and Safety (H&S) performance in the Brunei Darussalam construction industry (BDCI) is not only important; but integrating the concept based on Total Quality Management (TQM) would greatly enhance and improve the industry practices. H&S of any workforce in any part of the world is an important issue deserving the attention of engineers and safety officers in the construction industry. The need for good quality management in any good construction site is crucial for the overall success of achieving H&S. The present trend where the rates and frequency of accidents arising from poor implementation or non-compliance on H&S code based on TQM principles in the industry is relatively higher. The research paper seeks to evaluate the significance and existence of H&S performance in the BDCI with regards to TQM. Questionnaires form an important method of data collection in this research paper. From the survey conducted, it can be seen that the implementation of H&S and TQM develop and reinforce a positive impact and environmental values in the organization. In the current performance of BDCI, there is still need for continuous development in terms of enhancing H&S based on TQM.
