This paper provides a bibliometric review of technologies for safety on construction sites to explore the evolution and research trends on digital technologies for the management of construction safety. A comprehensive bibliometric review adopting a two-step literature selection method was conducted to compile relevant publications from the Scopus database. In total, 240 related papers were examined. VOSviewer was used to develop a co-occurrence network based on the bibliographic data obtained. The analysis focused on the trend of research topics on technologies for construction safety. Emerging trends in construction safety technologies research were project safety design and planning, visualization and image processing for construction projects, digital technologies for project monitoring, information management and Internet of Things, automation and robotic systems, safety and accident prevention, and structure evaluation. This study provides insights into technology development and application and identifies trends for future research, which is crucial for the construction health and safety stakeholders to share and access research findings.
