Mosaic Management Systems were delighted to be involved in this project when Costain were awarded the £700 million contract to redevelop London Bridge station by Network Rail back in May 2013. They have undertaken this work in phases, in order for the station to remain open and operational throughout construction. Around 54 million passengers travel through London Bridge station each year. By the end of the project in 2018, there will be much improved facilities and two- thirds more space for passengers.
During the continuing period of the build, Costain made provisions to track the workforce’s use of machinery, tools and issuing of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment). As they had 1000+ workers on site, they set up a designated storeroom on site manned by 7 Store Men over a 24 hour opening period. Utilising Mosaic’s expertise they were able to book out and back in all equipment used by the workforce and attach this activity to an individual’s record. Thus, ensure a complete record of the exchange and record of inspections throughout the equipment’s life. During the project’s life to date, there has been over 1.4 million transactions where tools and stock have been accessed and returned.
In addition they employed a full-time nurse on site from the outset, to undertake on-line medicals and depending upon the job, surveillance tests. These included hearing, eyesight, HAVS etc. Mosaic was used to support the occupational health work on this rail project and ensure all records were updated with the relevant information. Alerts were particularly useful to remind the nurse and key members of the management team about renewal dates.
