Penta-Ocean Construction is a major Japanese construction company delivering large-scale projects in marine civil engineering, land civil engineering and building construction works. As part of their Tekong Polder Joint Venture Project with Boskalis in Singapore and a move towards the digitalisation of construction site processes, they engaged ESC to implement a BlueKanGo QHSE software solution with customised modules for permit to work, safety hazard observation cards, HSE inspection and incident management reporting.
Working with Penta-Ocean’s HSSE Group Manager Colin Liu and drawing upon the knowledge and experience of the safety team at Boskalis, ESC developed a customised permit to work module which can be accessed by site users via desktop, phones and tablet. The digitalisation of the permit process greatly reduces the time spent on permit approval as compared with a paper based system, moreover, with the addition of mandatory fields, timestamping and records presented in an easy to monitor table, visibility and accountability have been greatly enhanced. As well as improving the efficiency of the permit to work process, the system also allows upper management to analyse data captured in the safety hazard observation cards, safety inspections and incident management modules which they can view in statistic tables and graphs and identify key trends and patterns in the behaviour of site users.
As the group HSSE Manager, I can login to the BKG system and there on the main dashboard I can get a big picture overview of the PTW system and review real-time statistics relating to safety hazard observation cards and site safety inspections at the Tekong Polder Project.
Over the life of the project, a range of useful data is captured within BKG and from this we can identify trends and patterns, we can use these to take actions to improve health and safety at the site and across the group as a whole
