Hammering Down on Safety with New Augmented Reality Construction Safety Guides
Pro-Visual Publishing in conjunction with partner Master Builders Association of Western Australia, Civil Contractors Federation and Victorian Building Authority has proudly released their latest editions of the Augmented Reality (AR) WA Construction Site Safety Guide and VIC Construction Site Safety Guide, distributed free of charge Australia wide.
The wall-mountable printed Guide is designed to be displayed in a place that is accessible and visible to construction workers. Considering the high fatality rate in the construction industry, having a resource that is informative and provides safety guidance is important in maintaining the safety of workers on-site.
The topics for each of this year’s guides have been carefully selected and are issues that are pertinent to the industry in regards to health and safety some of which include, working at heights, traffic management plans and dangerous respirable chemicals.
Once again, AR is a feature on both guides this year, providing an engaging user experience. The aim of the AR is create another way workers interact with safety information, contributing to increased retention. By simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app and scanning over any AR capable content, users can access further safety information straight to their smart device, for example, videos and web-links to further information resources.
