Application of the method Building Information Modeling and use of RFID technology to improve occupational safety in the construction and property industry

Project No. FF-FP 0389




The primary goal of this research project is to identify occupational health and safety-related information, to define, standardize and provide for preventive measures by means of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) method. By digitizing and its related media-consistent continuity of OSH-related process data throughout the life cycle of buildings, the work safety and health protection should be improved fundamentally.


  • WP1: Performing a process analysis along the life cycle of buildings with regard to occupational safety and health-related processes that can be optimized by the use of the BIM method and use of Auto ID technologies.
  • WP2: ldentification and standardization of processes
  • WP3: Definition of information to be collected and depth of the information content
  • WP4: Process Modeling
  • WP5: Definition of a process with particular relevance to the accident insurance institutions - demonstration process
