The site management team undertook a decision to implement the use of tablets to monitor and record deliveries. To do this we engaged with tablet provider Datascope to determine the best product for the LSE – CBR project.
Well-being is improved through reduced stress levels as the use of tablets allow more time to complete CLOCS checks and the sign in processes and they eliminate the risk of losing paper documents as data is stored on the tablet and downloaded and backed up each day.
Environmental benefits include:
- reduced use of paper as the system is all online, and
- reduced emissions as all delivery time data is held on the tablet so information can be accurately relayed to drivers on how long the wait to access the site will be so there is reduced emissions from lorries driving around trying to access the site.
The key challenges faced whilst incorporating the tablet system into the day to day working of our site logistics team included:
- changing behaviours to move away from the paper based process to having everything input through a digital system, and
- explaining and demonstrating all the benefits of the system, including the wellbeing benefits that each operative will benefit from, and
- ensuring that the system linked properly with the online datascope system and that the data was being recorded and stored on the online system and could be easily accessed and printed off in full if required.
Since introducing the system to the traffic management there has been a significant change in the way the front of the site is run. Questionnaires were issued out to each traffic marshall to reflect this.
