Applications of Building Information Modeling (BIM) have widely infiltrated various construction fields. BIM serves as a set of technologies to maximize productivity, increase collaboration, and improve work efficiency throughout the project life cycle. BIM also supports the best practices of other emerging technologies by creating a platform for i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Construction safety education will continue to attract the interests of construction educators, researchers, and industry professionals due to its immense influence on accident reduction and prevention. A well-educated workforce with a thorough understanding of safety requirements and procedures is needed to develop and apply effective safety and h...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
COVID-19 has significantly impacted the construction industry when it comes to the safety of workers. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has come up with some requirements for improving workplace safety for COVID, no study has been done on its effects on construction companies. The guide provided by OSHA talks about topi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
E-procurement has been a part of several industries for more than three decades now. Although the construction industry is commendable for its wonders, there are few studies about the current applications of E-procurement in construction. The main objective of this research is to survey the construction companies to collect the current practices of...
Article
Full-text available
Construction safety climates can reflect organizational safety behavior and commitment, employees’ safety perceptions and attitudes, and the supervisory and support environments. Maintaining a healthy safety climate can help prevent workers from fatal accidents and illnesses. To enhance the safety climate and, consequently, improve safety performan...
Article
Full-text available
Quality control is essential to a successful modular construction project and should be enhanced throughout the project from design to construction and installation. The current methods for analyzing the assembly quality of a removable floodwall heavily rely on manual inspection and contact-type measurements, which are time-consuming and costly. Th...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Integrating and storing digital data through Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3D Laser Scanning is of most importance in terms of visualizing project information. In this respect, this study presents a systematic and practical approach for detecting the assembly quality of anchor plates for a removable floodwall through the integration of BI...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Identification of hazards is the first step in accidents prevention. As hazards can be caused by different energy sources, the awareness of all the energy sources is key to identifying potential hazards and creating a safe environment. Accidents result from the interaction of energy, equipment, or materials, and one or more people, and the potentia...

Several studies have been conducted to automatically recognize activities of construction equipment using their generated sound patterns. Most of these studies are focused on single-machine scenarios under controlled environments. However, real construction job sites are more complex and often consist of several types of equipment with different or...

Article
Full-text available
As is often the case in project scheduling, when the project duration is shortened to decrease total cost, the total float is lost resulting in added critical or nearly critical activities. This, in turn, results in decreasing the probability of completing the project on time and increases the risk of schedule delays. To solve this problem, this re...
Article
Full-text available
Construction site characteristics tend to foster dynamic work environments with a multitude of interactions between moving equipment and pedestrian employees. Blind spot and obstructions can cause struck-by incidents between equipment and employees on construction sites. The research objective was to create a framework to identify and quantify area...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Equipment travel path planning is one of the significant components of construction site layout design. Navigating a terrain and determining the shortest path on a construction site is one fundamental concern in path planning. The major constraints used for our path planning process is the shortest path between desired cycle locations and obstacle...
Article
Full-text available
Employees of the U.S. steel manufacturing industry encounter dangerous working environments often resulting from limited visibility, hazardous proximity situations between heavy equipment and pedestrian workers and the dynamic nature of manufacturing tasks. Working conditions typical of steel manufacturing environments include increased amounts of...
Article

The U.S. construction industry continues to be plagued by workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities. Many construction companies choose to invest more in safety (discretionary safety funding) than required by safety regulatory agencies. The objective of this research is to explore the correlation between a construction company’s discretionary s...

IN BRIEF •One common hazard in manufacturing environments is struck-by events between forklifts and pedestrian workers. •This article reviews research conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of magnetic field proximity-sensing technology deployed in an active indoor manufacturing environment. •The technology was used to assess multiple variables a...
Article
Full-text available
The cycle time of construction equipment for earthwork operations has a significant impact on project productivity. Elements that directly impact a haul vehicle's cycle time must be identified in order to accurately quantify the haul cycle time and implement strategies to decrease it. The objective of this research is to scientifically identify and...
