Abstract

Construction workers' unsafe behaviors are closely related to construction safety performance. Most existing studies on construction workers' personality traits and safety behaviors have ignored the flexibility of worker mix at construction sites, the dynamics of workers' behaviors, and the complexity of environmental risks at construction sites. Based on the cognitive process of construction workers' safety behaviors and from the perspective of personality traits, this research establishes an agent-based model of steelworkers' mutual assistance behavior. The AnyLogic platform is adopted to show emerging phenomena in complex problems. Through simulation experiments, the optimized configuration of construction team members under different risk environments can be obtained. This research is conducive to project managers to understand the influence of construction workers' mutual assistance on team safety, assess workers' potential for safe work before recruitment, and carry out active safety management from the source instead of looking for the cause of the accident afterward, making safety management theory more realistic and dynamic.
