Using BIM to Enhance Construction Safety and Health

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle (see BIM Standard at http://www.nationalbimstandard.org/faq.php). The growing implementation of BIM has brought many benefits to building design and construction planning, and has been found potential tool for promoting safety throughout a building’s life cycle. The webinar highlights innovative applications of BIM in design, planning and on the construction site in support of Construction Safety and Health.
