Summary / Abstract:

ENTo design solutions for occupational safety at a construction site for the construction technology project,an occupational hazard was assessed. Possible solutions for occupational safety depend on the number of criteriasuch as hazardous factors from which workers must be protected; the number of danger zones; architectural-designand structural solutions of a building; types of technical protection measures, etc. A large set of solutions foroccupational safety predetermines the number of respective typical (or repeated) solutions, which are based onspecific technical safety measures and are applicable depending on a hazardous factor; besides, it determinessystematisation of the solutions on these grounds. It is suggested to use the Multiple Criteria Decision Making(MCDM) technique for assessment and selection of appropriate solutions for occupational safety. The authorspropose formulating assessed alternatives from the typical solutions to ensure their quality and then apply theentropy method for determining relative significances of evaluation criteria and, finally, use Weighted AggregatedSum Product Assessment (WASPAS) method for ranking of alternatives.Keywords:construction site; occupational hazard; occupational safety; risk; health and safety solutions; MCDM; entropy; WASPAS.
