Abstract

The Design for Construction Safety Toolbox, Version 2.0, is a versatile, easy-to-use tool to help plan and design projects for enhanced construction worker safety. This software provides a means by which designers and others can address construction worker safety in their designs. By considering construction worker safety when making design decisions, designers can help eliminate or control recognized safety hazards, reduce the number of injuries and the associated costs, and provide a beneficial impact to other aspects of a project.

The Design for Construction Safety Toolbox, Version 2.0, contains a database of design suggestions or “best practices” that can be implemented during the project planning and design phases. The program is best used at the beginning, or during the early stages, of the design phase so that the safety ideas can be easily implemented without additional effort or expense. The design suggestions not only focus on construction phase safety, but also can be applied to the start-up, maintenance, and decommissioning phases of a project.

With the use of this software, the user can quickly focus on creating a safe design for a particular project. The program is applicable to all types and sizes of construction projects through an interactive, graphical, computer environment. The software program covers many elements of a construction project’s design. It allows the user to quickly focus on one or all of the different project categories, including administrative, sitework, foundations, roofing, structural, finishes, doors & windows, mechanical and HVAC, electrical, industrial piping and tanks & vessels. The sheer simplicity of the use of the program makes it easy for the user to focus on the safety issues, without being inconvenienced by software concerns.
