Hazard app 'to save construction workers'

Hazard App that is making work on-site safety easier for construction workers!

 

A new App that shows potential dangers at building sites could save the lives of construction workers has just launched. Let's go over some of the features and see if it's work downloading. Other on-site management Apps do already exist, but none are solely focused on the health & safety side, which this App is trying to nail down.

The research that went into developing the application was given £102,800 in funding from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. The App itself contains a database of potentially hazardous scenarios, with pictures and videos, which architects and designers can use to improve their own plans. The advantage of people working on-site being able to upload a hazard instantly is unmatched. Simply take a picture and upload it so that everyone else is made aware of the danger!

The technology was developed by a team of researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University. The App hopes to prevent accidents from happening in the first place, rather than reduce the injury.
