About the Project

The construction industry is well noted for its contribution to national economies. The industry provides the built environment and is an engine of economic activities providing employment to many. In spite of the socio-economic benefits of construction, it is associated with huge costs in the form of occupational accidents, deaths, injuries, illnesses and dangerous occurrences. Safety and health hazards are commonplace on construction projects and these are further compounded by the dynamism and transience of construction works. The emergence of industry 4.0 presents opportunities for addressing the occupational safety and health challenges of the construction industry. However, the realisation of such opportunities requires research to investigate the potentials of industry 4.0 technologies in facilitating the management of OSH risks in construction.

The PhD student will be supervised by a team of four academics with expertise in occupational safety and health and industry 4.0. The PhD student will also have the opportunity of engaging with relevant industrial contacts of the supervisory team as well as the members of Thomas Ashton Institute (
