Abstract

As the construction industry continues to develop across the world, it is crucial that it begins to integrate digital technologies into all aspects of design, planning, construction, maintenance and even the demolition of construction projects. This review explores the current use of this technology to help mitigate risks on site with a focus on proactive design rather than reactive mitigations; with the aim of directing further research on the topic to help improve the health and safety record in construction. A variety of literature was reviewed specifically relating to the integration of BIM into construction alongside an array of construction safety literature. By integrating these two strands of literature, it has allowed for the suggestion of new practical methods of recording and presenting health and safety information by facilitating a risk identification process that assigns assets with hazards and mitigations.
