Abstract

Within the construction industry, Health & Safety (H&S) is one of the leading concerns. Although a significant amount of H&S data is collected, they are not being used effectively for decision making. One of the main issues with using H&S data is that they are generated in an unstructured format, requiring time and effort to transform the data into useful information. Thus, this research aims to develop a cloud-based application to collect structured H&S field data from live construction sites. A prototype was developed using Microsoft Power Platform and Microsoft SharePoint cloud-based storage to demonstrate the practicality of the application. In this application, the structured data is automatically analysed against the required ISO 45001 H&S outputs. To enable informed and decisive decisions, real-time data analytics dashboards are created by Microsoft Power BI. The resultant analytics provides valuable insight into the safety climate of live construction sites.
