Working within the water sector brings with it a host of regulations and certification requirements. Having planning software of the highest quality helps develop and implement a stringent plan that ensures site safety is a priority, that all on-site personnel are tracked and monitored for security and health and safety reasons, and that all regulations relating to both AMP7 and PR19 are met with utmost professionalism and accuracy of data.

SitePlanner offers a range of benefits that are applicable for the water industry, helping to meet strict standards and raise the level of efficiencies on a wide range of projects and individual tasks within a sector that can often be challenging. This article will review the regulations in place and the industry landscape that SitePlanner can assist with.

There are many challenges that the water industry has to face head on, and AMP7 is designed to do just that, looking at ways in which standards can improve and customer satisfaction levels increase. Innovation is key with regards to looking after the environment for future generations, and with the anticipated higher costs to perform those roles whilst maintaining customer satisfaction the water industry has to perform to greater efficiencies in all areas.

The welfare and safety of all personnel and contractors in the water sector is paramount to achieving the goals laid out in AMP7. Without key, qualified staff, there is no way that the standards can be met, and ensuring there is a strong HSEQ framework for personnel is a key deliverable from the SitePlanner software.

How can SitePlanner assist the Water Industry?

SeaRoc Group understands the pressure points and specific requirements of the water industry. With our SitePlanner system we can assist those within the sector to implement operating practices to a high and consistent standard, in line with PR19 and AMP7. Our software has been designed and developed to help improve the effectiveness of operational implementation, as well as to reduce potential risks for personnel, contractors and any other site visitors within a wide range of projects and sites.

A number of water companies are now using SitePlanner in order to meet the high standards set out by regulations during the next AMP. Our clients have already seen the rewards of a cost-effective method to deliver site inductions to personnel, across multiple locations through an online process. This leads to a greater level of efficiency in terms of monitoring and controlling all personnel present on site, as well as all contractor certificates being identifiable and accessed from one single point. SitePlanner also offers a direct link to the CITB database for verification of credentials and the ability to be fully customisable to suit the specific requirements of individual water companies, projects and sites.

SitePlanner helps clients achieve greater safety and efficiency by providing the tools to:

  • Pre-enrol personnel and have their induction completed before they arrive on site
  • Record personnel certificates and qualifications and receive alerts when they are due to expire
  • Ensure contractors arrive on site with pre-approved Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS)
  • Manage multiple sites from a central system
  • Receive a time and date stamped audit of activity

With AMP7 fast approaching, it is important for all companies working within the water industry to finalise plans and go through a thorough implementation period prior to the next AMP beginning in 2020. Time is of the essence, and a solution in the form of SitePlanner will help water companies to provide a framework of detailed, accurate, and up-to-the-minute data analysis that increases efficiencies across the board, looks after the safety of all personnel and contractors working on-site and in the process increases standards and customer satisfaction levels.
