Abstract:The use of augmented reality for teaching stone cladding safe assembling operations stems from the need for the prevention of accidents on construction sites. Falls from height are the most common causes of serious accidents, often fatal, not only in Europe but throughout the world. There is a great need of increasing the Health & Safety levels.
The article presents the results of the ARSC project - Augmented Reality for Stone Cladding Safe Assembling Operation with the number 2019-1-PL01-KA202-065001 which is implemented under the Erasmus+ Program. The main goal of this project is to improve safety on construction sites during the installation of stone cladding by preventing accidents at work. The objective of the project is to decrease the accident rate during the construction of tall buildings, especially during stone cladding works. To achieve that goal training system containing manual and Augmented Reality (AR) software will be prepared. It will help fitters and engineers to access all needed information on H&S and gain knowledge on stone cladding technology.
Keywords: Innovation, education, augmented reality, health and safety, facades, construction.
