Thirty-five construction site workers are severely injured each day and over a quarter of onsite fatalities are caused by falls from heights. These hard-hitting facts come from a recent report published by Safe Work Australia, emphasising the importance of understanding safe work practices in the building and construction industry. Because construction sites present such a huge number of risks, it’s so important for construction workers to understand the risks they face on site.
This is where AR fits in. Pro-Visual Publishing is one of a number of companies using interactive technology to enhance safety information by developing new resources to help workers stay safe on the job. Our Pro-Vis AR app enables our construction site safety information resource guides to act as a kind of portal, leading users to further information and allowing them to access hidden content.
But of all the extra content, the most effective aspect of the safety guide is the animated experience, each demonstrating in striking detail the three common causes of fatality on construction sites and how they often occur. Visual and aural experiences allow viewers to engage with content for longer. For construction workers this could mean the difference between life and death. Construction workers will be able to deepen their understanding of potential hazards and prevent risking the safety of themselves and their mates while on site.
