Abstract The quality of concrete at domestic construction sites were assessed through a conducted survey taken by construction managers and quality managers. The survey results revealed that quality managers had low awareness of their work due to poor training. External training and company provided education was not properly enforced. The management subject of formwork removal, the most important among the quality control items of concrete, was not clearly defined. Despite the standards set for removing the formwork being clearly stipulated in the standard specifications for construction work, there were frequent cases where they were not observed. At the construction site, big and small accidents occurred every year due to poor quality control involving the construction of concrete. Regardless of these accidents, many construction projects were carried out without additional concern and with an easy-going attitude. It was evident that bringing awareness to this issue needs improvement. Accident prevention through proper education of safety regulations should be provided at construction sites while increasing awareness to this issue. Continuous education is particularly needed to raise awareness of the importance of concrete quality control.
