TechFest Awards BBMV wins NCE Best Use of Technology of Health and Safety

BBMV JV—a joint venture of Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall and VINCI Construction Grands Projets—was awarded Best Use of Technology: Health & Safety at the 2017 New Civil Engineer TechFest Awards, for their use of our Predictive Fatigue Management Solution.

In autumn 2016, BBMV JV became the first organisation in the United Kingdom to employ this solution. It combines our scientifically-validated sleep data collection using the Readiband wearable device, with the SAFTE Fatigue Model, a US Army-developed biomathematical model, to predict the alertness level of safety-sensitive operatives.

New Civil Engineer’s Festival of Technology was held on September 14 in central London, and gathered together thought-leaders, decision-makers and emerging minds to share and scrutinise the latest technology-led innovations.
