What to expect during the event
Although there has been a broad increase in the area of OSH (Occupational Safety and Health) and existing several companies making substantial efforts to implement BIM for OSH purpose, BIM does not yet have the prominence it has in other disciplines. As BIM is creating new ways of managing OSH, this presentation will analyze the main potential uses of BIM for improving OSH management taking in account the Council Directive 92/57 / EEC on the implementation of minimum safety and health requirements in temporary construction sites. BIM’s potential uses were analysed through six areas: documentation / contractual management; risk identification and assessment; training; site planning; task planning and monitoring; emergency planning and work accident investigation
