SafetyCam | Revolution in road worker safety collects major accolade
SafetyCam emerged victorious in the Health & Safety at Work category at the CIHT Awards 2018 and went on to receive the institute’s top accolade.
The joint submission from Carnell and Kier Highways was crowned ‘overall winner’ by the judging panel for best representing CIHT’s values and the achievements of the sector.
The mobile road worker protection system is an intelligent site safety innovation which acts as a conspicuous deterrent and has been proven to improve driver behaviour. The dual camera system virtually eliminates vehicle incursions into traffic management and dramatically reduces the number of site vehicles exceeding speed restrictions when passing the workforce.
After receiving the awards, Carnell’s Chief Executive Darren Nelson said, “I’m very proud of this achievement at the industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony. Big thanks to our clients Kier Highways and Highways England who have collaborated with us to make this possible.”
Andy Butterfield, Head of Service Delivery for Highways England was on stage to receive the award with the Carnell team and commented, “We have an ambitious plan to invest in innovative solutions to drive a step change in safety, customer service and delivery. SafetyCam is the pioneering example of how we can form alliances that deliver improvements in road worker safety.”
Dave Wright, Executive Director at Kier Highways remarked “this joint victory is the culmination of many years’ hard work and collaboration with our key supply chain partners to deliver safety excellence.”
Carnell have a strong pedigree for developing innovations which improve road worker safety. This latest achievement comes on the back of another win and a highly commended in the CIHT Health & Safety at Work Awards over the last four years.
