Carnell’s SafetyCam road worker protection system has won the CIHT East Midlands Health & Safety Award.
SafetyCam was first deployed by the Highways England East Midlands Asset Delivery (EMAD) contract in January 2018. The vehicle is shared between all of the Construction Works Framework service providers and to date has been used on a dozen different schemes in Area 7 .
Adrian Oulds, Head of Service Delivery East Midlands, Highways England said ‘I believe that the use of SafetyCam on the EMAD contract has significantly improved road worker safety across the area. A positive change in driver behaviour has been observed including a reduction in both site vehicle speeds and deliberate incursions into traffic management.’
The joint submission from Carnell and EMAD was singled out by the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation judges, for its high quality across all criteria against five other shortlisted entries.
The awards were held on Friday 26 October 2018 at the Nottingham Belfry. Pictured are Matthew Lugg OBE (CIHT President), Barrie Whittle (presenting the award for PF Cusack), Liz Bell, Dave Trotter, Keith Clay, Mark Humpage (Highways England), Tom Wilson and Chris Hayball (Highways England).
Carnell’s ‘Digital Solution for Managing Fatigue’ was also shortlisted at the awards.
