A statistical safety control model for construction sites using location systems Edrei, Tsah; Isaac, Shabtai


A statistical safety control model is presented that utilizes data from a Real Time Location System of relatively low accuracy, to alert of unsafe situations at construction sites. Based on the Statistical Process Control methodology, predefined statistical rules are used to detect trends of increasing exposure to hazards, and provide proactive alerts before a critical exposure takes place. An initial verification of the performance of the model was carried out through extensive laboratory tests.
