British Standard has published the new technical standard BIM PAS 1192-6: 2018 flow of information regarding workers health and safety BIM standards on construction sites.
PAS 1192-6:2018, recently released as a pre-standard, adds up the already full-scale list of key documents supporting the British construction world using the BIM methodology and trying to achieve the so-called “Level 2” BIM. This technical standard, regarding workers health and safety BIM standards, or to use its full name, “Specification for collaborative sharing and use of structured Health and Safety information using BIM”, consists of 66 pages integrating H&S information regarding workers on construction sites into models, processes and applications which are common to BIM.
PAS 1192-6:2018 specifies requirements for the collaborative sharing of structured information concerning workers’ health and safety aspects throughout the project and asset life-cycles, while supporting each construction development phase from the beginning.
The PAS provides guidance on how H&S information is produced, flows and can be used throughout the building’s design, project management and asset lifecycle.
Although all information on risks for workers’ health and safety issues can be included in a single information model, PAS 1192-6 requires contextualisation and the possibility to selectively estimate risks, prioritize high risks, identify hazards and critical aspects concerning safety, etc.
The BIM Level 2 suite of documents have been developed to help the Construction industry adopt BIM Level 2. These documents consist of:
- BS 1192:2007+A2:2016
- PAS 1192-2:2013
- PAS 1192-3:2014
- BS 1192-4:2014
- PAS 1192-5:2015
- PAS 1192-6:2018
- BS 8536-1:2015
all available for free download on the BSI website.
