The Construction Industry Accounts For A Considerable Portion Of Work-Related Accidents Annually. Taking Appropriate Pre-Construction Measures Can Significantly Lessen The Probability Of These Accidents Occurring. An Essential Step Toward Achieving This Goal Is Identifying The Unsafe Attributes Before Construction Begins. This Research Introduces A Semi-Automatic Method For Identifying And Reporting Construction Hazards In The Early Phases Of The Project. The Presented Method Benefits From Building Information Modeling (BIM) Object-Oriented And Visualization Capabilities Combined With The Project Schedule (4D BIM). An Excavation And Stabilization Operation Of An Actual Residential Building Project Case Is Used To Demonstrate The Method’s Applicability. A Hazard Database Is Created And Linked To The 4D BIM Model Of The Project To Identify The Hazardous Attributes Causing Struck-By Accidents. According To Feedback Collected From The Project Team And Safety Experts, the Reduction Of Hazard Identification Time And Increased Accuracy Were Considered The Two Most Significant Benefits Of This Method.
