Abstract
An operations oriented data base concept was developed for health and safety data for the construction industry. Construction industry hazards were investigated, and potential users were surveyed. Possible data base designs were identified. Resources for development and maintenance of a data base were determined, and methods for distributing the data base were identified. Sources of information were examined. The data base concept as developed was operations oriented as opposed to bibliographic or technology oriented in order to best serve the industry. The data base would be continually updated with information concerned with safety, health and ergonomic hazards associated with this industry. Information on the control methods used to combat the hazards would also be included in the data base. Methods for distributing the data base were briefly considered; multiple distribution methods eventually may be used.
