Features & Benefits

View the various features and benefits of using BIMsafe software

Features

  • BIMsafe allows you to utilise your current 3D modelling software, without having to purchase new software or subscribe to any other online BIM viewing platforms. Our software is compatible with all Autodesk and Bentley software, including Autocad, Revit and Microstation.
  • BIMsafe has been developed to be compliant with PAS 1192-6 Specification for collaborative sharing and use of structured Health and Safety information using BIM.
  • Our bespoke online database includes all of the requirements of PAS 1192-6, plus some extras, such as identifying whether a risk is related to ‘construction’, ‘end-use’ or ‘both’, who is the responsible designer and who is the eventual risk owner. The appropriate 3D Risk symbol is automatically generated from the standard risk lists for placing in the 3D model.
  • The BIMsafe application includes the ability to create a Risk Assessment & Method Statement (RAMS), in compliance with PAS 1192-6 and is a combined risk assessment and method statement with a suggested coding to the construction programme activity numbers. This can also be linked, or refer to, company generic procedures and other documents.
  • Our unique platform includes hyperlinks to the relevant guidance within the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website and the Construction Industry Publications (CIP) Knowledge. The hyperlinks are automatically populated when the risk is chosen from the list within the bespoke spreadsheet.
  • Native and federated models can be uploaded to the cloud and viewed, including all symbols with the attached hyperlinks, allowing them and the guidance hyperlinks to be viewed on portable devices such as tablets on the site.
  • BIMsafe includes 3D blocks/cells that have been designed to reflect current formats of hazard, risk and temporary works. Where these are not available, a graphical representation has been developed.
  • As PAS 1192-6 is updated and industry standards change, the BIMsafe application will be updated to remain current.
  • Our platform has been developed in accordance with the “The use of European Standards for Temporary Works design 2014” published by the Temporary Works Forum and “BS5975 Code of practice for temporary works procedures and the permissible stress design of falsework”.
  • Our risk lists are based on those contained within PAS 1192-6, plus some additional health, safety and environment risks that may also be present.
  • BIMsafe allows each designer to create their own design risks and associated symbols within their native model. Each designer can also create their own Temporary Works risk and associated symbol within their model.

Benefits

  • BIMsafe has been designed to be very easy to use. Additional further software subscription costs have been minimised. You can be recording your health and safety risks in less than hour using the BIMsafe platform.
  • The designer can be confident that the bespoke risk register is compliant with the latest industry guidance and specification.
  • The designer can be confident of working to the latest standard and the risk is suitably categorised in accordance with the latest guidance.
  • The designer can be confident that the RAMS register is compliant with the latest industry guidance and specifications.
  • Industry standard guidance is provided to the user without the user needing to perform internet searches for appropriate information.
    As the links are automatically populated the user can be confident of referencing the correct information related to the risk, meaning that less experienced users can feel confident of accessing the relevant guidance.
  • All guidance and information about risks can be taken onto the site, allowing the user to see all risks and hazards on the site, together with suitable guidance, meaning that the user will be fully aware of the risks on the sites and safer in the site environment. The user can also access what the designers have considered and the actions the designer has taken to eliminate and reduce risks, together with any assumptions.
  • The designer has 3D symbols available which are instantly recognisable and familiar to most people.
    The 3D symbols are provided in formats which can be used by virtually all CAD software packages, including Autocad, Revit and Microstation.
  • The designer can be confident that BIMsafe will always be up to date and compliant with the latest standards
  • The temporary works coordinator and others can be confident of working to accepted industry standards for the effective management of temporary works. This will also be useful to the Principal Designer for their duties regarding temporary works design.
  • The designer can be confident of categorising risks in accordance with the accepted industry specification.
  • When the federated model is created, the symbols are also federated and the individual DRRs and TWRs are combined. This ensures that all risks are visible to the whole project team, regardless of their individual design discipline.
