The construction industry is among the most significant economic factors. For this to remain so safety must be ensured on construction sites. Latest trends and developments for work safety on construction sites ensure that specialists can work safely and that costs are reduced.
Great physical effort, changing weather conditions, constantly changing working environments, considerable time pressure and project-specific risks—many factors have an influence on construction site safety. In most cases, the basis for safe construction works has been created thanks to the Construction Site Ordinance and the deployment of a safety and health coordinator. To operate efficiently and cost-effectively in the long term, bauma offers you exciting insights into the latest developments in construction site safety. In the exhibition halls A1, A5, B3 and B5, visitors are informed about the latest occupational health and safety options on the construction site and they learn how digitization and alternative drives can not only save energy and costs, but also provide more safety on your construction site.
Thanks to the steady development of modern technologies, the construction machinery industry benefits from great potentials that may have a positive impact on the work safety on the construction site: in future, alternative drives and, for example, autonomous driving will let the construction industry implement your projects more economically and more safely. Minimizing accidents and preventing potentially dangerous situations can contribute to cost reductions and increases in safety.
The digital construction site will enable you to network and control construction equipment and, at the same time, it makes construction works safer: remote-controlled construction machines increase the safety of employees and may reduce the risk of accidents. Networked hard hats, smart construction clothing, driverless cranes and intelligent forklifts are already used on construction sites and help optimize processes, protect workers and turn Construction 4.0 into reality. At bauma, you can convince yourself of the developments in safety that are ensured by the digitization of the construction machinery sector. Discover the latest planning software, current sensory technology or the use options of data available from construction vehicles.
Another factor are user-friendly programs and electric drive options to increase occupational safety. Construction sites that deploy heavy equipment and involve poor visibility or extreme loudness, for example in mining, require special protective measures. Visitors to bauma will find out which new measures in the field of construction site safety will be feasible in the future, which trends are currently emerging and how you can cost-effectively increase occupational safety at your construction site in the future
