Abstract

The unprecedented growth and integration of the innovative technologies in information and communication tech-nology (ICT) promotes rapid evolution of conventional construc-tion to smart construction. Advanced technology application brings impressive benefits such as time and cost reduction, especially safety management improvements in the construction where accidents and fatalities always happen due to the unsafe and risky working environment. In the sense that the fatality rate is one of the main quantitative measurements that reflects safety performance, numerous public agencies giving accident reports and safety standards to recommend for the construction stakeholders. However, incidents in workplace remain unin-terrupted because of the deficiency of safety information and understanding the root causes of accidents in specific conditions. Moreover, many construction companies do not have managers who have particularly technical and professional expertise related to safety area. It leads to pressures in controlling the whole process of construction within safety implementation, and so on, the workers face difficulties in approaching and understanding the complicated safety document. As a result, the manager’s burden increase and sometimes vital information get ignored. To address this issue, this paper proposed a Real-Time Safety Planning (RTSP) System supported by 4-Dimensional Building Information Modeling (4D-BIM), which consist of risk severity assessment based on the temporal and spatial conditions before giving priorities of major hazard protection. To accomplish this, the study evaluated and distributed the severity of 320 fatalities cases in relation to Fatal Four (four major fatality causes in construction industry) reported from various public resources, which specifically illustrative of accident concentrate rate in an individual work task. A simulation of RTSP system for the Exterior building wall with major hazard consideration and designated Temporary Safety Facilities (TSF) utilizing 4D-BIM is presented as a proof of concept. It is expected that the novel approach could decrease the safety manager workload and will make the construction safety planning process more comprehensible.
