Targeting incident recreation for the construction industry

Consider animation trainings like one of those magazine spot-the-difference exercises. It forces your brain to make a virtual tour of the incidents that have happened in the past.

Except that it’s a training exercise in identifying and mitigating workplace safety risks.

Many companies use 3D animation exercises to teach employees how to make the workplace safer. He knows what safety hazards employees overlook thanks to digital training which can help guide future training experiences. 

And because it’s virtual, the development teams can keep revising and creating new training to keep employees safe in any situation.

Part of our job as safety professionals is to increase the knowledge and awareness of those we work with. 

Training is never over. 

Especially in the construction industry, the ability to walk through a building before putting a shovel in the ground can not only show the team what they will be building, but it can also identify hazards before they become true hazards.

The team can then determine how to eliminate the hazard or implement controls to keep people safe. Those decisions are made by the team, who understand what needs to be done and take ownership of the project’s success.

The construction industry is quite adept at adapting to constantly changing situations and conditions. As a result, COVID-19 did not have a significant impact (some sites presume that). 

It is difficult to find accurate information early on. 

Our animation development team utilizes all available resources to implement a plan in accordance with the CDC, OSHA, and health departments. It definitely requires Subject Matter Expertise, but by working together, one can keep personnel free from the injuries at the jobsites.

When it comes to understanding serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) in the workplace, the first step is to notice and identify trends in potential and actual incident data. Industry-wide, Employers should already be on high alert because fatality rates are holding steady.

Taking a step back to examine the causes and precursors of incidents in construction can assist businesses in identifying the root causes of SIFs and then taking action to mitigate them. SIFs are frequently caused by workers meeting machinery or other equipment in industries such as construction or manufacturing.

Companies can then use additional analysis to pinpoint specific activities or equipment that are putting their employees in danger and mitigate risks to employees and third-party contractors involved in work activities. 

Visuals can be extremely useful in identifying pain points and developing predictive models. Workplace managers often begin by collecting relevant data and establishing an analytics initiative to better protect their employees.

All of this helps in SIFs – they get identified and are stopped.

Employers face more risks when hiring contract workers than full-time employees, particularly when it comes to workers’ health and safety. 

Full-time employees are typically subjected to onboarding at the start of their employment, as well as ongoing training and recertification, as well as open communication from their management.

Contractors, on the other hand, may be hired and engaged in high-risk work activities for a week or several years. 

Companies can connect with contractors in a more organized and efficient manner by using a virtual training system. These systems can store can facilitate safety communication in an easy-to-track method and maintain safety equations within. 

Employers can increase their visibility by bridging the gap between contract and full-time employees into potential risks, drive alignment across the entire workforce, and reduce serious injuries and fatalities throughout their organization.

Many leading organizations base their decisions and actions on safety as a core value. Improving employee health and safety performance is critical to ensuring a safe environment for all stakeholders who visit a company’s facilities or work sites. 

Employers risk significant financial, legal, and reputational consequences if they fail to improve safety and health performance rates, in addition to worker loss and reduced productivity.

To improve overall business outcomes, conversations and commitments about safety and risk management must be elevated to these higher-level stakeholders. C-level executives should also work with others in the same industry to establish safety performance benchmarks and work together to improve safety.

SIFs and other workplace injuries and illnesses should be reduced. 

Taking this step will necessitate a financial and time investment on the part of the C-suite and board members, but prioritizing safety as a core value will improve profitability, employee/contractor attraction and retention, and reduce resources devoted to liability.

The types of internal processes, activities, or machinery causing actual or potential incidents can be identified using advanced 3D animation feels, incident recreation scenarios and methods, all of which can be directed to mitigate risks proactively using data-driven insights.

It all comes down to implementing new training systems – all of them help pinpoint specific activities or processes that are harming or exposing their workers to risks. 

Companies will be able to generate predictive models based on their results to better prevent future injuries and fatalities. Especially after they understand problem areas and factors associated with incidents.
