Highways England have highly commended Speedy Services, BAM Nuttall and Morgan Sindall for their use of Mission Room technology on major highways projects.
The award came in the ‘Safety, Health & Wellbeing’ category of Highways England’s Supply Chain Awards.
BmJV were recognised for adopting Mission Room training on M1 projects, both at junction 18 and junction 39. Using our immersive technology, they were able to educate workers about worksite risks and hazards without the need to conduct real site walkouts. The award is further proof of the successful partnerships we have established with bmJV and Speedy to deliver a safer and more efficient workforce.
A strong approach to safety is at the centre of Highways England’s vision, having recently outlined plans to target a 40% reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured on their network.
Managing Director Dr Bryan Denby said, “The Safety, Health & Wellbeing category is one of the most important so to get Highly Commended in our first year is really very positive”.
This is now the second time Mission Room have been recognised by Highways England in the last six months, following on from a Blue Star Safety Award last year. These awards are testament to the impact we have had on the highways sector within the past twelve months.
