The most obvious benefit from using BIM in general, and for safety as well, is the visual nature of three-dimensional plans, which facilitates the identification of the hazards, various discussions and communication to employees, as well as provides totally new possibilities for proactive planning of safety. 4D construction planning is a growing trend, and a breakthrough, making it possible to plan and visualize site status at various moments of time including the needed temporary safety equipment. BIM-based safety planning is not common at field yet. Examples show BIM-based 3D site layout and safety plans, fall protection plans, 4D construction work order planning and visualizations including safety, and use of BIM for site communication.
