The safety analysis of reinforced concrete buildings during construction should be based on thecomprehensive understanding of loads, load effects, structural resistance, and available safety index of thestructure. This paper analyzes the characteristics and probabilistic models of resistance, loads, and load ef-fects. A method was developed to calculate the probability of failure based on Monte Carlo simulation andmodels proposed in previous articles. Construction examples were used to analyze the influence of live loadon the probability of failure. The results show that when the live load increases, the maximum probability offailure increases with acceleration. The results suggest that the construction live load should be carefullyaddressedduring construction.
