With the development of the construction industry, many problems such as human safety are remaining unsolved. The construction holds the worst safety record compared to other industrial sectors, approximately 88% of accidents are related to workers' safety. The high complexity of the construction site compare to the ordinary living environment is also a major factor that cannot effectively protect the safety of workers. In this paper, an integrated sensor network method is proposed for the safety management of construction workers. The main signals collected in this paper are visual signals and electronic signals. The compatibility issues caused by cooperation between different types of signals will also be discussed in this paper. At the same time, a multi-signal automatic correction method is used to improve the accuracy and efficiency of our proposed method.
