Utilising cameras to build information about the local environment

It is essential to gather as much information as possible, about the environment you will be working in.

This better prepares your workforce for the nature of the work and the potential challenges posed.

Increased information enables you to better safeguard your workforce, allowing appropriate preparation to mitigate the risks posed.

Below is an example of how sites have used cameras to learn more about the environment in which they are working:

  • A locomotive travelled the full length of the track, which was affected by the construction work and recorded all the physical and natural features on a wide angle CCTV camera;
  • The footage was then used and displayed on three wide screen flat TV’s in a dedicated meeting room to brief the workforce on local conditions, allowing the design team to develop solutions for local situations and allow the scope of environmental works necessary to be established.
