To create a safe work atmosphere, it is essential to control the spread of unsafe behaviors among construction workers. Based on group behavior theory, the relationship between the influence factors and means of spreading unsafe behavior among construction workers is verified using a structural equation model (SEM) and multiround research data. According to the research, (1) spreading methods of unsafe behaviors consists of demonstration-imitation and infecting-conformity; (2) the influence of
