Abstract
According to the latest statistics released by the Labour and Welfare Bureau, the construction industry records the highest accident rates in Hong Kong. Amongst the nine fatal industrial accidents in 2018, eight came from the construction industry. As many accidents are caused by a lack of safety awareness, it is vital to consider some viable approach to improve that. Likewise, while the development of artificial intelligence is in full throttle, the construction industry is falling behind the curve. Thus, we aim to study the factors that affect the safety awareness and the application of artificial intelligence to enhance it.
