Abstract

Occupational safety in building construction remains a worldwide problem. In Finland, one in four fatal occupational accidents takes place in the construction field, falling from height being a major safety risk at construction sites. The growing implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the Architecture/Engineering/Construction (AEC) and Facilities Management industry is changing the way safety can be approached. 3D and 4D BIM can be used to promote safety by improving safety planning, management, and communication, and by integrating safety more closely into construction planning.
