The Smart Sensor System is a derivative product that executes in the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). It is anticipated as an effective way to collect, identify, and process information, sensor-based technology is deemed to provide a new generation of methods for advancing construction safety management. Since Malaysia’s construction industry has faced a vital issue due to the high frequency of construction accidents over the years, the smart sensor system is recommended to be implemented in improving the construction site safety management. It makes the real-time construction safety management with high efficiency and accuracy a reality and provides a solid foundation for facilitating its modernization, and informatization. This paper aims to analyze the potential of the Smart Sensor System in enhancing the construction site safety. This research utilized the qualitative method by interviewing experienced professionals, as safety officers and an Information Technology (IT) engineer. The result shows that the smart sensor has high potential to be implemented in the construction industry for site safety management while minor improvement and enhancement need to be carried out in minimizing error risk, coverage , and cost performance.
