Title: Implementation of a training model on construction sites using multimedia Kiosks
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: Every year, approximately five thousand people die while working in Europe. The investment inprevention has not been directed to a great extent to the training of workers. Workers in construction,typically have low or no formal education, a factor that does not facilitate traditional face to face training.Therefore, it is urgent to find solutions that suit the particular conditions of the construction sector andprovide adequate training for workers. The causes of accidents in construction are two:: lack of preventionand bad practices. Information is a fundamental tool for prevention, making workers aware of risks andaccident prevention. Training is essential to create the necessary competences, to change behaviours andattitudes. A solution to accomplish information and training is the implementation of multimedia kiosks onconstruction sites, running an eLearning program for construction safety. The solution is based on theinteroperation between the kiosk on site and the centralized management of the databank on safety.
