Solihull firm Biosite lands deal to drive health and safety at HS2

Solihull Editorial 9th Jan, 2021   0

SOLIHULL-based company Biosite Systems Ltd has won the contract to deliver a new health and safety passport system for HS2 staff and its contractors.

The new digital ‘Health and Safety Passport System’ (HSPS) will be used initially by all of HS2’s main works civils contractors to share vital health and safety information across contractors.

Contractors and staff may find themselves working across multiple sites and multiple contracts on the new high speed rail route and the new digital passport system will establish a central database of workforce information across the HS2 supply chain.

The collection and synchronisation of data from local level to project wide will help to ensure consistency of standards and performance.




As well as ensuring only operatives with the correct credentials and skills are permitted access to site, the aim is that this approach will allow HS2 to track workforce data around areas such as competency mapping, health and safety assessments and fatigue management across the whole project.

Emma Head, HS2’s safety and assurance director said: “Health and safety is at the heart of everything we do as we build Britain’s new high speed railway.


“We are pleased to be working with Biosite to deliver the initiative, bringing workforce management for complex projects such as HS2 to the next level.”

Li Wang, managing director at Biosite Systems Ltd, added: “The solution will focus on ensuring data integrity and synchronicity at every point, to ensure the team at HS2 have access to accurate data that will deliver valuable insight and help support project safety, efficiency and compliance.”

The HS2 HSPS initiative is scheduled to go live in spring 2021.
