Managing Construction Safety With Software

construction safety

There’s been a lot of speculation and discussion about this year’s evolution of the construction industry. We’re going to grow more, spend more, do more in 2022 than we have in a long time. We’re facing many challenges, too, but the one thing we know for sure is: It could be worse. Much worse. Our technology investments will impact construction safety in 2022.

Construction Technology, Software Investments in the Field

A 2022 industry outlook study revealed construction industry companies are poised to invest more in software and construction technology this year. Construction technology impacts onsite project construction safety:

  • AI – Artificial intelligence software on job sites prevents accidents by providing real-time monitoring of safety risks.
    • Power gloves can reduce hand injuries due to overuse by providing artificial – but effective – strength to workers’ grips.
    • Smart hard hats – You know what it feels like: Microsleep is when you’re not asleep but not fully awake. Smart hard hats can detect brain waves and reduce the risks of injury to workers.
    • Wearables/virtual reality sensors mounted on equipment features allow smart boots to sound an alert if a worker is dangerously at-risk.
  • Data collection – This software performs safety analyses and equipment conditions.
  • Drones – Safety and security can be monitored and managed in real-time.

Environment, health, and safety (EHS) management software tracks trends and performance, risks, and challenges so project managers can make knowledge-based decisions. This software also makes staying in compliance with constantly changing safety regulations easier:

  • Mobile-device friendly views
  • Onsite data is accessible by every level of management
  • OSHA/other regulatory standards captured; easier auditing processes
  • Safety reporting is faster/easier
