Health and safety is one of the most important aspects of the construction industry. Every year there are thousands of work-related injuries in the construction industry. Avoiding these injuries is of the utmost importance on a jobsite. This paper will analyze how building information modeling, specifically the use of 4D building information modeling, can be utilized to increase the overall health and safety of construction jobsite. An exploratory survey was conducted amongst architecture, engineering, and construction industry professionals who hold a wide range of experience. The aim of this survey was to analyze their knowledge and experiences using building information modeling, especially 4D building information modeling, in conjuncture with health and safety. This paper also serves to lend background information on health and safety, building information modeling, and more specifically 4D building information modeling. This paper provides possibilities of future research that can be conducted as a part of the research taken from the survey.
