The connected sites; How have you challenged the way people connect on site? 

 

What are you doing with your systems to encourage connectivity of your staff? 

 

 

The construction site of the future will be run on a huge range of connected sensors, equipment, data and most of all people.  We are making huge progress in connecting many of these elements to systems that allow innovation and collaboration but many of the operatives on site are not connected.

There are many issues around company’s IT policies that exclude many construction operatives accessing systems.  There are a plethora people connection with an array of phones, ipads and other personal devices who can connect to google but probably not our company systems.

 

How have i3P members challenged the way people connect on site?

There must be a wealth of different applications that could help our on-site employees make their work place a safer, more productive and connect place but are we excluding too many people from making a difference?

How are you connecting your operatives and to what?  This would seem to be an ideal place for i3P members to collaborate and boost best practice across the infrastructure industry.

What are you doing with your systems to encourage connectivity of your staff?

Tell us what you are doing and together, let’s encourage the use of best practice.

  1. Any insights from our peers and colleagues would be fantastic.

    Currently some of the issues for getting information to and from our sites are:

    No login usernames for our operatives
    No hardware to have access to our intranet
    Strict IT rules, such as 2 factor authentication, passwords, and device access
    Restricting access to the right systems
    Easily accessible

    A lot of these things could improve efficiencies by, allowing operatives access to their training records, search the company for key contacts and information etc…

    We already use systems like Aurora for biometrics to register time and attendance, to me it seems plausible that we could authenticate our users like that, but that brings itself its own challenges, and security concerns.

    Look forward to hearing from the team.
