Portal launched to support supply chain around Highways Passport.
A portal to assist the supply chain with the implementation of the HE passport has been developed by Reference Point, the Software provider behind the project.
Passport is transforming how we ensure the competence of the people working on the network to continuously improve standards for the industry, which not only increases safety but reduces costs and improves efficiency.
Endorsed by Highways England and sponsored by the Supply Chain Safety Leadership Group, Passport uses the best, trusted technology to reliably deliver and capture real-time information when and where it is needed to enable workforces to be effective and safe whilst on site.
Passport is a powerful, comprehensive and feature-packed mobile workforce management solution.
It holds all the information needed to confirm whether an individual should have “authority to work” and this decision is enabled in real-time 24/7 to enable effective, productive and safe working across all Highways projects.
This is powered by Reference Point’s proven SkillGuard system.
Accessed via the internet, the Passport database is powerful, flexible and comprehensive. Passport gives you complete visibility of your workforce, including: job roles, qualifications, competences, training, primary and secondary employment, associations through the supply chain, project-based events, recent shifts, work restrictions and so much more. Plus, visitor management, work crews and comprehensive reporting, including the ability to schedule reports for distribution.
Passport is specifically focussed on any highways worker and their employers – whether workforces are focused on Highways England projects, local authority roads or a combination.
The development of the portal is supported by a 45 minute ‘Lunch and Learn’ session, delivered by Reference Point and Mitie which is being held as a part of SHL!ve digital week on 21st September 2020.
Hosted by Tanya Morris, Development Director at Reference Point, the software providers behind the scheme, the 45 minute online briefing will offer attendees a comprehensive overview of the Highways Passport System and service:
