Struck-by-equipment hazard, i.e, contact collision between worker-on-foot and construction equipment or between equipment and equipment, is a major cause of injuries and fatalities in construction. A variety of smart technologies and systems have been developed and utilized to alleviate the risks of this type of hazard. However, most of the existing technologies and systems perform with a high rate of false alarms which have critically impeded their implementations on real construction sites. Therefore, a system performing more accurately and in real-time needs to be developed to enhance construction safety. In this context, a real-time system integrating with the 4D Time-Sphere model is developed to timely identify and alarm struck-by-equipment hazards with reduced false alarms. This system is comprised of Global Positioning System (GPS), Inertial Navigation System (INS), Raspberry Pi micro-processor and the developed Time-Sphere model. Corresponding actuation will be triggered if an unsafe situation is identified, i.e., struck-by-equipment hazard(s) are or to be presented. A controlled field experiment was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of the integrated system and the effectiveness of the Time-Sphere model in reducing false alarms. The obtained results show that average 53% of the alarms generated by the prevalent method can be reduced by the Time-Sphere model. All of the reduced alarms are false positives. The average false positive rate of the prevalent method is 29%. Moreover, it is demonstrated that the developed system is feasible and effective in identifying struck-by-equipment hazards in real time and potentially enhancing construction safety.
