Keeping roadworkers safe with our new vehicle incursions and abuse reporting app Jarvis.
Incident management reporting on the highways
The Jarvis app also allows road workers to record details around any incurred injuries, including the location using the GPS map functionality, as well as the ability to upload any images captured on workers’ mobile phones to provide evidence in the report. If any physical harm was caused to workers, the incident will automatically be flagged as a high priority and will notify stakeholders that need to be aware of this within the relevant organisation or project teams.
Alongside the vehicle incursion incident report functionality, the abuse report was built very similarly to ensure consistency and clarity for the workers. The main difference between the two incident categories is the items listed on the menu drop-down, which include physical assault, vehicle jacking, verbal abuse and more. Within these categories, roadworkers can also provide further details around an abuse incident, such as whether vehicle jacking was attempted or successful and the outline of the type of abuse endured.
Clear view of the road ahead
The incident reports are then submitted to the Notify management portal, whereby the correct individuals that are responsible for the area, are able to investigate, provide updates and generate the correct action plan to resolution. Due to the extra detail recorded in the report, instant event submission and management dashboards, investigations immediately take place to tackle the incident and root causes for all incidents. Additionally, lessons learned may be applied to prevent other vehicle incursions or abuse incidents from occurring in future.
Collaborating for the better
As part of this project, Notify IM has been successfully rolled out across the A63 in Hull, in partnership with Balfour Beatty and also across Balfour Beatty Living Spaces in Southampton which is already leading to a significant increase in the volumes of incidents that are being reported (including a road worker being threatened with a knife!).
