Can BIM Redefine Safety in Malaysian Construction?

In the face of robust growth projections for Malaysia's construction industry, there's a pressing need to harness technology to revolutionise safety management and boost operational efficiency on sites.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) stands out as a pivotal tool, offering a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of places, which significantly enhances planning, design, construction, and management of buildings and infrastructure.

Meanwhile, integrating technological solutions can help to reduce incidences of occupational injuries and better compliance with safety regulations. Innovations such as wearables, drones, and artificial intelligence (AI) for real-time monitoring and risk assessment could play a crucial role in mitigating various hazards or at least, significantly reduce accidents and fatalities on construction sites.

In this episode, we explore how technological advancements help to drive the shift towards smarter, safer, and more efficient construction practice with Vitaly Berezka, the Regional Head for Central Asia, Middle East and North Africa and Asia-Pacific at PlanRadar.
