Title CSHM: Web-based safety and health monitoring system for construction management
Bibliographic information 2004, Vol.35, No.2, p.159-170. Illus. 39 ref.
Abstract This paper describes a web-based system for monitoring and assessing construction safety and health performance, entitled the Construction Safety and Health Monitoring (CSHM) system. The design and development of CSHM involved the integration of Internet and database systems, and the devising of a list of safety and health performance parameters with the intent to create a fully-automated safety and health management tool for the construction industry. The four key components of CSHM consist of a Web-based interface, a knowledge base, output data and the benchmarking of the results. The system enables speedy assessment of safety and health on construction sites.
