App keeps track of hazards

Wednesday, 12th December, 2018 4:51pm

Three Cork students have been awarded for creating an app for the construction sector.

Three CIT students were recently selected as finalists in the inaugural ESB Networks National Safety Challenge for their innovative concept for the construction sector.

Students Kyle Redmond, Amy Meanwell and Zach Harrington created an app called Sitesafety4u that allows site managers and foreman to identify and keep track of site hazards.

Paul Mulvaney, Executive Director, Networks Customer Delivery, ESB Networks, says: “Established this year, the ESB Networks National Safety Challenge invites students to think critically and analytically, to push the boundaries for a safer working environment for the future of the agricultural and construction sectors.

“Each of the finalists should be really proud of the commitment to farming and construction safety. I was hugely impressed by their innovative approaches to the competition and the wider practical applications, both on the farm and on construction sites.”
