TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Before teams can access a construction site or track, they have to be fully briefed and go through a sign-in process. This is intended to validate that they understand the work they’re undertaking while keeping a record of who’s on site. But in a post-COVID-19 environment, with the need to maintain social distancing, this proved difficult.

During the COVID19 epidemic engineering works have come to a safety stop in order to protect staff and stakeholders. As a result organizations had to re-evaluate how they carry out engineering works and particular attention were given to the worksite briefings and signing in and out processes where staff mostly congregate.

The Remote Briefing solution is a secure cloud-based software solution that digitizes the process of briefing delivery and signing in and out of a worksite, improving the briefing quality and eliminating queues and congestion at site access points.

As inductions are required by law in most countries, the process adheres to strict guidelines that need to be met.

Endorsed by Transport for London's regulatory compliance and technical departments for the restart of engineering works in August 2020, the Remote Briefing digital solution helps organizations ensure a safe working environment for their staff.

Testimonials

“What started as a challenge to address social distancing for a safe restart, has developed into a critical re-thinking of access to track, maximising the benefits for all stakeholders and bringing the whole organisation together to drive real change.”

“The personal touch this app gives colleagues allows them to feel very much a part of the process and it encourages engagement as they’re required to answer questions on the briefing correctly, before they get their QR code.
