Tackling the Consequences of Workplace Falls

Cyber-Physical-System-600x400Falls from heights are the most common cause of injury on work sites and are a particular concern for the construction industry.

Now there is a new way to tackle this hazard, virtual models such as the Cyber-Physical System.

The Cyber-Physical System has been described as a system consisting of a seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components, already being used in the manufacturing, transportation and healthcare sectors. There are safety benefits for the construction sector as well.
