The purpose of this study is to provide basic data for establishment of prevention counterplan against construction accidents in preparation for variation of climate conditions. In order to execution of this study, it was analyzed relations of climate factors and cases of construction accident occurred construction sites. In occurrence of construction accidents inducing death upon variation of Climate factors, precipitation and wind velocity were not related directly to construction accidents inducing death. On the other hand, the more temperature and humidity are high, the more construction accidents inducing death occurred. Especially, when temperature and humidity are above $24^{\circ}C,\;70\%$ respectively, field managers must pay attention to safety management of construction sites.
