BRE’s H&S Software to help you meet Government Targets
How Will You Meet 2025 Targets?
Anticipating a 70% growth in global construction by 2025, the UK Government has set the construction industries sights on achieving 30% reduction in costs with 50% increase in speed of delivery by then. At the same time there will be a 50% reduction in greenhouse emissions, and 50% improvement in exports of construction products and materials. So, how are YOU going to achieve this within your enterprise?
Government’s “Clear Vision”
This is based on their view that the construction industry:-
- is known for its talented and diverse workforce
- is SMART - efficient and technologically advanced
- is SUSTAINABLE - leading the world in low-carbon and green construction exports
- drives GROWTH across the entire economy
- has clear LEADERSHIP from a Construction Leadership Council
… and will provide the basis for the industry to exploit its strengths in the global market.
H&S Software to help “Lean Construction”
BRE’s health and safety tool YellowJacket has added a lean construction tracking feature that will help contractors measure and improve productivity on site. Lean Construction is about improving efficiency in the design and construction stages. In practice this means looking at processes and people and identifying and removing wasteful activities that prevent value being effectively delivered.
It will be available free to the 12,000 existing users of the software. YellowJacket’s new lean feature enables the capture of real-time data related to time spent on non-value-added activities, such as the number of people involved in a particular site process.
Data captured will be displayed in visual reports including heat maps, graphs and timelines, letting users know how projects are performing. By collecting this performance, data users can start to identify and target areas where improvements can be made.
Government 2025 Targets
BRE YellowJacket director Crawford Burns said: “Improving productivity and reducing costs and delivery time are key tenets of the government’s Construction 2025 strategy which sets out a plan to deliver a 33% reduction in construction project costs and a 50% reduction in overall project delivery time. Our aim is to help our customers who are already gathering data on health and safety to start measuring their processes in line with lean and ultimately improve productivity.”
