Launch of BSI PAS 1192-6: Collaborative sharing and use of structured Health and Safety information using BIM, London

Watch this event

This event will officially launch PAS 1192-6, which is the latest BSI code of practice for collaborative sharing and use of structured Health and Safety information using BIM.

Delegates will hear from industry, practitioners, BSI and the Health & Safety Executive all about the practical uses of PAS 1192-6, how it works and how it integrates with other standards.

What is PAS 1192-6?

PAS 1192-6 is a BSI Publically Available Standard which aims to make organisations aware of good practice for collaborative sharing and use of structured Health and Safety information using BIM.

Why is this PAS needed?

To date,  BIM users have been slow to collaborate on sharing structured health and safety information across project and asset lifecycles. This PAS aims to remedy that by providing guidance on applying H&S information through BIM processes and applications.

What does PAS 1192-6 do?

It specifies requirements for the collaborative sharing of structured H&S information throughout the project and asset life-cycles, supporting the development of structured H&S information for all construction projects progressively from the outset.

It provides guidance on how H&S information is produced, flows and can be used throughout the project and asset lifecycle. While all H&S risk information can be included within an information model, this PAS requires the contextualization and filtering of hazards and risks to prioritize the elevated risks and aspects that are safety critical.

It also sets out a framework for the application of H&S information through BIM processes and applications, although the principles and requirements of this PAS can be applied equally to non-BIM projects.

It specifies how to use H&S information to:

  • Provide a safer and healthier environment for end-users
  • Mitigate the inherent hazards and risks across the asset lifecycle
  • Improve construction H&S performance, with fewer incidents and associated impacts
  • Provide for clearer, more assured and relevant H&S information to the right-people at the right time
  • Reduce construction and operational costs
