SafetiBase is an award-winning system designed to improve the identification, management and communication of health and safety hazards for construction projects, allowing the sector to be increasingly data-driven in how it addresses health and safety risks.
It was developed collaboratively by a number of industry partners including Balfour Beatty VINCI, 3D Repo, Atkins, Mott MacDonald, Laing O’Rourke, Costain, Bentley, HS2 and Tideway. Funded through i3p and Innovate UK, SafetiBase stores structured health and safety risk data in the cloud to provide a better way to manage health and safety information than the unstructured and complex landscape that existed previously.
SafetiBase allows users to identify and manage health and safety risks within a 3D model. Because it uses a common coding language , it can be used to benchmark project safety performance and easily share lessons across disciplines. As it is a fully integrated element of the 3D Repo platform, users from any discipline, skill level or location can easily collaborate to mitigate risk in the context of the 2D, 3D or 4D model.
Users can draw on previously identified health and safety risks to inform the identification and mitigation of risks on their projects. The system records the issues that have been considered, actions taken and who has responsibility.
SafetiBase has been designed to conform with PAS 1192-6:2018: Specification for collaborative sharing and use of structured Health and Safety information using BIM.
SafetiBase is currently being utilised for some of our clients such as HS2 on the Area North and Old Oak Common station projects and for National Highways on the Lower Thames Crossing and M4/M5 Smart Motorway projects.
