Safety councils are nothing new for the construction industry, but not many of them can say they include the biggest names in the industry and champion some of the most cutting-edge technology available for preventing jobsite accidents.
The Predictive Analytics Strategic Council, founded earlier this year, encompasses some of the largest players in commercial construction, including Skanska, Suffolk and DPR.
Membership is about more than just showing up to meetings; council members must bring proprietary data to the table, sharing historical digital project data from a period of more than 10 years.
The council uses this collective data to build artificial intelligence-based predictive models for safety and risk that will be used by member firms and others in the industry.
