Necessity of construction automation through BIM framework could no longer be set aside if we were to remain relevant and concurrent in the ever-changing, technology-driven construction practices. The functions of construction safety management, i.e., hazard identification, assessment and control for construction works could certainly benefit from this technology through safety work automation which enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the required safety processes. This paper aims to outline a research project for developing both information and technical requirements for BIM-based system via literature review, questionnaire survey, focus group, and prototype realization. The project results, to be validated by real projects, will act as solid platform for developing working model that can be employed at various project settings and safety circumstances. It will support the decision-making process with respect to safety enhancement and accident mitigation at the construction site.
