Construction companies have been using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to model and sequence safety, prevent incidents, automate safety logistics checks, run through installation details prior to site visits and eliminate risks to welders. Using BIM allows contractors to plan and schedule work more effectively, and prefabricate elements of the project, shifting workers away from the job site.
According to Dodge Data & Analytics, 27% of general contractors, construction managers, and architects report improved overall project safety with projects using BIM.

Studies show that BIM enables project teams to incorporate safety more effectively into planning. Many are looking to model-based processes to improve safety, and leveraging BIM technology for safety planning and training is a step in the right direction.
