Description

Too many people are killed and injured in our industry each year, despite the best efforts of all parties concerned.

Although it is not new, Building Information Modelling has seen a huge uptake in interest in recent years. This is partly as a result of Government support, but mainly due to great leaps in technology.

The basic principle is simple. BIM is about gathering, using, interpreting and transmitting information. Information about design, production and programming. Information that can be passed on to others, used for operation and maintenance, or costing purposes.

Is it such a departure, therefore, to consider how health and safety information might be included in a BIM? Is this not a massive opportunity for those of us working in construction to embrace this technology and its development, together with the increased efficiency and discipline that it brings? The commercial advantages are fairly obvious, but the potential benefits in improved health by reducing accidents and deaths are so great as to be almost unquantifiable.

This book looks at how that can be brought about. The incorporation of health and safety into BIM is neither something which is the exclusive preserve of the ‘technology’ generation, nor something which is beyond us as health and safety professionals.

It is, as modern parlance would have it, a ‘no brainer'.

Available as an eBook from our eBookshop.

Date Reviewed: December 2014

As a lecturer in undergraduate construction undergraduate programmes I found this text to be very informative in the aspect of health and safety within the relatively new area of BIM (building Information Modelling.) The useful and up to date information provided can support undergraduates in considering how health and safety issues can be considered within the BIM arena. I will be recommending this text to my students
