BIMPACT Enhancing Construction Safety Management with BIM Technology
BIM Integrated SIM Approach for Construction Industry Professionals
By: BIMPACT Design Pvt. Ltd.
BIM Integrated SIM Approach Objectives:
The technique serves as a solid foundation for providing AEC experts with practical advice on different types of safety management based on object identification, geometrical aspects, and safety norms.
Model Information Exchange, Visualization, Conflict Analysis, Risk Assessment, and Reliability are some of the technical requirements that the methodology helps software developers to meet.
Backdrop Assisting with Development:
The construction industry has the biggest number of facilities and accidents in the world, with several workers injured or killed. The most common causes of mortality are falls from great heights and lifting operations. The mishaps result in large financial losses for a project. According to studies, AEC professionals may prevent 40 to 71% of fatalities on the job site by thinking about safety during the design and construction stages. BIM integrated SIM aids construction professionals in making crucial decisions in this area.
On this World Day for Safety & Health at work, Balraj Singh Shekhawat - Director - BIMPACT Designs Pvt Ltd mentioned: "Though the growth of Safety Information Modeling (SIM) is the fundamental pre-requisite, automation using BIM improves the efficacy of safety management. A more comprehensive BIM - Safety Information Modeling can empower the full building life cycle from design to facility management to automate the construction management process."
Safety Applications in BIM:
BIM has already been adopted in the construction sector to develop data-rich models of buildings and structures in nations such as the United States, Finland, and Norway.
BIM encourages collaboration among project participants and allows for site planning, improved communication, and the elimination of errors.
BIM now performs design for risk assessment with the 4D scheduling platform, reducing the inefficiencies of traditional construction safety management's paper-based methods.
The use of BIM in construction safety management enables:
