How often does site safety fall to the wayside?
2.3 million workers die every year by work related injury at a staggering cost of $3 trillion, according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
Is part of the problem that site safety is traditionally just another report of endless (meaningless) paper? We can’t tell you how many times we have received a generic risk assessment by a sub contractor, or how many times we have seen trades simply signing without reading, just so they can hurry up and start. To put it simply, paper, spreadsheets, and data are disconnected – so it is easy to see why this problem is perpetual.
Builders/Contractors have a lot of crap that they have to deal with. Adding more paper with big blocks of text is not the solution, Virtual construction with hazard identification is.
It is far easier to plan the setting out of a site and to identity the hazards with a 3D model. There is no need to decipher or interpret things, which we all need to do when we receive a 2D plan. Moreover, if something doesn’t work or fit – it is made perfectly clear in the 3D model.
