JHG has rolled out Geo-sight on it’s Vodafone, Virgin Media, and Openreach contracts. It allows work teams to be monitored and directed remotely in real time, providing evidence of compliance and status of the work site as it happens. Martin Cook, health and safety director of the JHG group says:
“Geo-sight is an invaluable tool that provides real time pictures from the field that enables you to not only monitor the external works but it also acts as a medium for the field staff to raise any issues that can be reviewed independently and a safe solution found”
With no capital investment required, and low operating costs, the use of the app by the workforce has had a major impact on JHG’s business. The images received from all workstreams are monitored live by JHG, to ensure work is executed safely, and to high standards. Since it’s introduction, work defect rates have fallen, and signing and guarding of highway works significantly improved.
