Project Details

Title:Assessment of Safe Work Indicators in Transportation Construction Using Personal Monitoring Systems
Principal Investigators:Caroline Clevenger and Moatassem Abdallah
University:University of Colorado Denver
Grant #:69A3551747108 (FAST Act)
Project #:MPC-649
RiP #:01769504
Keywords:construction safety, health, monitoring, occupational safety, physiology, road construction workers, stress (physiology), video


The objective of this research is to develop and implement a non-intrusive system for monitoring and providing feedback regarding individual transportation construction workers' physical health and performance. Our piloted system synchronizes physiological data with video recordings. Specifically, the system links Zephyr Bioharness, an off-the-shelf physiological monitoring (PSM) device (chest strap) to on-site construction video capture (GoPro or security camera system video recordings). Monitored stress indicators include: heart rate, breathing rate, posture, physiological load, and mechanical load.
