AbstractPlanning for safety in construction is increasingly being emphasized on United States Army Corps of Engineers projects. Contractors are required to submit an Activity Hazard Analysis, which identifies specific hazards expected during each phase of construction. However, in many cases this analysis is a pro-forma exercise and is not adapted to the specific construction project. An interactive expert system, based on the rules contained in the Corps Safety Manual, that interfaces with the CAD project model and the project schedule should make planning for safety on a specific project a more meaningful activity.
