The contribution deals with the risk assessments of contemporary accidents in construction in the Czech Republic. The risk analysis is defined as a systematic and structured data processing to identify potential hazards. The risk is a quantitative or qualitative expression of threat. A number of accidents and human errors are characteristic of the construction industry. A zero risk does not exist. An analysis of 615 incidents is presented which identified the location within the building sector in the Czech Republic. The risk analysis including the Risk Assessment Matrix (RAM) is based on secondary data from the Construction and Technical Prevention System (CTPS) in the Czech Republic from 2010 to 2016. The risk level is determined by the likelihood of occurrence and consequence of defects, faults, and accidents in the construction industry.
