Scientometric Analysis and Review of Safety in Design in AEC Industry

EasyChair Preprint no. 9204

10 pagesDate: October 31, 2022


Safety in design (SiD), is a new paradigm for managing workers safety in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) sector. However, there is a lack of a holistic mapping on the SiD research in a global range. To explore the advancement and sketch the panorama of SiD research, this research investigates SiD research through a scientometric review. A total of 199 bibliographic records from Web of Science, Scopus, and Engineering Village were retrieved and analysed.
Results show that the most distinguished countries where SiD research have been undertaken are the USA, UK, and China. Major studies fields concentrated on engineering and technology; however, studies on electrical, ergonomics, building information modelling, decision making, equipment, and education are emerging. In addition, the paper presents a framework genialised from several key themes, revealing the focal points and trends of SiD research over time. This review provides a comprehensive understanding of SiD research word wide, contributing to the existing knowledge in safe design and has laid a solid foundation for future research that look into the detailed design features for improving SiD implementation in the construction projects.
