Study Of Safety Management By Using Gis In Coimbatore

[Full Text]



S. Kanchana, J. Faney



Project risk, visual monitoring, web-based models, real-time map.



The safety management is very important in the process of construction .The traditional methods of construction safety control cannot meet the construction of big project. To ensure the safety of construction and reduce accidents in the process of construction, the current situation and problems we face in construction safety management should be studied first. And then the project risk warning mechanism based on the GIS is constructed according to the problems we faced, to achieve visual monitoring and warning of construction safety risk management and to provide decision support for construction. This project aims to develop a web-based spatial decision support system model for proactive health and safety management in linear construction projects. [5] Currently, health and safety management is usually performed reactively instead of proactive management since hazard identification and risk assessment is mostly performed on paper based documents that are not effectively used at site. An information system relates to a chain of operations lead to planning the observation and collection of data, to storage and analysis of data, to the use of derived information in decision-making processes. To create a web-based, free and open sourced GIS that can work with different data formats by exchanging and presenting data as a real-time map on web.
