HS2 Hackathon Success

Posted:

A team from Biosite, in collaboration with Costain, took part in the recent HS2 Hackathon event and triumphed as the overall winners.

Transport Systems Catapult’s HS2 Hackathon was a two day event that took place on 8th and 9th December. It brought together leading technical innovators from across Britain all tasked with pitching radical new ideas for how technology could revolutionise key aspects of the HS2 rail project. In total 17 teams participated, putting forward their solutions relating to a range of challenges that the development of HS2 will face.

The team from Biosite and Costain, called Mercury, focused on the challenge of wellbeing. They proposed how the competency, training, fatigue and general welfare of a workforce on a construction site can all be managed through intelligent biometric access control. Biosite’s unique operative profile platform and biometric linking enables the effective tracking of every member of a workforce from site to site. This efficient match would provide real-time analysis with multi-layer trigger factors, uniformed compliance management, and flexibility with instant updates. All this means that workforces can be centrally monitored to ensure that health, safety and security is optimised.

Working with Biosite on the Mercury team was Kevin Reeves of Costain. He provided a valuable contribution and it was the combined efforts of everyone that led to the win on the day.

Li Wang, Managing Director says, ‘There were some great teams with great ideas on the day, so the fact that we came out as the overall winner is a fantastic result for us. We started this business 7 years ago to support construction sites with their workforce management using our innovative solution, and it’s great to see that future projects like HS2 are recognising the benefits of such technology moving forward.’

Biosite uses its technical expertise to provide a range of integrated solutions that have been specifically designed to help manage, monitor and maximise safety and security on construction sites, all delivered to customers’ individual requirements.

Mosaic Management Systems was voted runner up ‘one to watch company 2017’ category at The Construction Computing Awards. Judged by a panel of peers and industry experts the award recognises the role of their health & safety platform in advancing the way the construction sectors manages the workforce.

Master of Ceremonies Chris Cowdrey, former England cricket captain, presented the award at a black tie ceremony held on the 16th November at the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Bloomsbury Street, London. Affectionately known as “The Hammers and now in their 12th year, the Construction Computing Awards showcase and reward the technology, tools and solutions for the effective design, construction, maintenance and modification of commercial buildings, residential and social housing and civil engineering projects of all shapes and sizes.

John Micciche, MD of Mosaic Management Systems commented on the award “It is always great to be recognised by your industry peers for the contribution we have made in the sector and we feel this award certainly reflects the hard work we have put in throughout the year innovating the product offering.”

The Mosaic Management Suite of products allows the construction industry to make the most out of cloud based technology. It is a system designed with full understanding of the health & safety challenges contractors and clients face, as well as the work process and compliance procedures required. The system allows management of competencies and evidence without error or duplication. It is a scalable solution built with project management in mind. Most importantly, it is a solution that can easily be used by anyone with low or no IT skills and is therefore easily adopted into all company cultures.   

Mosaic health & safety workforce software to be used by Keir BAM on Hinkley Point C earthworks contract

Posted:

A Kier BAM joint venture has now signed contracts with EDF Energy to carry out £100m+ of site preparation works for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset. Keir BAM have chosen Mosaic Management Systems to help them manage their workforce on this project by delivering an online health & safety platform for the duration.

The work that Keir BAM have been engaged to complete includes excavation, earthworks, terracing, the installation of construction site infrastructure and formation of roads and networks to allow main construction to start. The contract is estimated to create 350 jobs.

The Mosaic systems will be used to record the delivery of safety briefings and toolbox talks in real-time. In addition, the SkillCheck module will be used to check workforce competencies and monitor them over the contract duration. Assets will also be tracked using the Mosaic RFID technology, that flags up who is using what, and also helps schedule inspections and maintenance.

John Micciche, Mosaic’s MD commented “We are happy that Keir BAM have chosen to use our system on this ground-breaking project. Our system is already employed at the Hinkley site with another client, so it is great to extend our footprint further on this lengthy build.”

Mosaic wholeheartedly supports HSE’s campaign ‘Go Home Healthy’ via HealthCheck module

Posted:

As HSE (Health & Safety Executive) launches its Go Home Healthy campaign, Mosaic is proud to support this endeavour with the announcement that our HealthCheck module is now accessible via the SkillPass App on smart phones.

With 9 million working days being lost last year to Musculoskeletal Disorder and a further 12 million to stress – we must take the health of the workforce seriously states the campaigns main message. The construction industry is particularly prone to a workforce needing further support due to the physical and mental pressures placed on the workers in the sector.

Mosaic HealthCheck helps Occupational Health employees to perform and monitor checks on fit-for-work medical records on its workforce using a secure platform. The new app driven service can be a useful reminder for management and medical/health team members to monitor and manage occupational risks.

The HealthCheck module accessible via the SkillPass app will help support the rollout of the campaign, reduce the risks associated with mental health breakdowns, and monitor staff who may need extra support. This saves a considerable amount of time spent chasing paperwork and forms, and cuts down on paperwork for employers and construction companies. Follow the conversation further on Twitter @ #WORKRIGHT
