My Speakers Sessions

  • Friday, 11 March, 2022
    • BILT ANZ 2021, Sydney (March 2022) | Workshop: Health and Safety Risk Assessments with 4D BIM
      Joshua Lumley, Pedersen Read
      Pre-Design, Design, Construction
      Project Controls


      In this workshop we will perform Health and Safety Risk Assessments on a 4D BIM model set to a particular phase of construction (featuring machinery and workers).
      No BIM experience is required. This workshop is aimed at people in the construction fields as well as architects & engineers.

      The diagnostic tool we’ll be using is a collection of triangular Hazard Symbols that show pictorial representations of potential hazards e.g. Excavation, Working from Heights, Live Wires, Mobile Plant.
      The primary learning outcome of this session is to promote 4D BIM enabled Health and Safety…not as a chore, or a checkbox to ticked, but rather as a commitment to the safety of your team.
      4D-BIM (the addition of time to a 3D model) allows us to perform Health and Safety Risk Assessments with more accuracy.
