Abstract: Accident in construction sites are a result of several reasons such as the worker’s training, lack of awareness, site working conditions, and the design of the project. An understanding of what is the best tool to enhance the worker health and safety awareness is a needed especially for low-skilled worker. Since the steel structures construction continues to be one of the most hazard jobs in the construction industry, the visual training process to enhance the workers understanding becomes essential. The objective of this paper, which is part of my Ph.D. is to presents the development of a system that can demonstrate the hazards of site activities in an advanced visualization tool, the system can determine whether this activity exist in a given digital image by processing digital color information. For the development of the image processor, color image processing is employed instead of grayscale image processing commonly used in previous researches.
