The content derived in this paper portrays the effect that technology has on safety and how it may be enhanced and altered in the built environment. Ensuring safety on the jobsite is the most important aspect of concluding a successful project. Alongside safety on the jobsite is technology, both of which work coherently together to ensure proper construction. Technology has advanced tremendously in the built environment and it is difficult for all aspects of the project to be up to date universally. Safety lacks the technological integration that is found in the design and preconstruction phases of a project. There are software’s such as Procore that enable a company to hold all safety construction documents together like JHA’s and TBT’s, however the efficiency of the safety components within these software’s can be improved upon. With new technology being implemented into the world today, I have explored new possibilities such as developing a safety software and implementing robotics, BIM coordination, and wearable technology that can adhere to all safety requirements on a jobsite while also preventing injury. Safety is the most important part of a job and should be held at the highest standard with the help of technology.
