    Abstract

    The successful implementation of an optimal health and safety management process in the UK construction industry has been impeded by the inadequate utilisation of information present in the construction environment. Consequently, this inability to adequately utilise construction environment information has contributed to the construction industry becoming one of the most dangerous industries to work in. This paper explores an approach that addresses the utilisation of construction environment information that can enable the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to utilise analysed information for various construction accident mitigation procedures.
