    This class will introduce the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software as a construction-safety planning platform. We will introduce some effective practices and advantages of using BIM to identify potential safety hazards, find mitigation procedures, and prevent hazards in construction planning. We will show you how to connect a construction-safety database with BIM software, and we'll cover how the software can assist safety personnel to inquire about safety knowledge and conduct job hazard analysis efficiently. We will also show you several examples of actual projects that used BIM for safety planning and hazard prevention.
