Abstract
A lack of appropriate safety knowledge has been identified as a major factor leading to poor safety performance on sites. Various types of mobile apps, Internet of Things (IoT) and Web 2.0 for sharing construction safety knowledge have been proposed by academics, but if they are to be effective, practitioners must be willing and possess the tools to use them. In this research, we will aim to: 1. study the current applications and factors that affect the willingness to share construction safety knowledge via mobile apps, Web 2.0 and IoT; 2. investigate the interrelations between willingness and actual knowledge sharing via mobile apps, IoT and Web 2.0 and construction incidents; and 3. construct algorithms to predict construction practitioners’ willingness to share construction safety knowledge via mobile apps, IoT and Web 2.0.

缺乏適當的安全知識是導致建造業意外的主因。學者提出利用物聯網、應用程式和網路2.0來分享施工安全知識,理論上能減低意外發生的機率。然而,紙上再有效的措施,沒有業內人士應用,終究只是空談。有見及此,是次研究將會探討業內人士利用物聯網、應用程式和網路2.0分享施工安全知識的實怳,分析影響業界使用相關工具的因素,意願與實際知識共享的相互關係;進而預測業界使用這些工具共享施工安全知識的意願。
