Raising the profile of health and safety at work

Mace

New online health and safety system offers a unique ability to manage wide-ranging health and safety requirements for multiple contractors.

Challenge summary

International consultancy and construction firm Mace sought a functionally-rich online health and safety tool for its own projects and to take to the market as a new revenue stream.

Solution

With proven system development capability, Sopra Steria was ideally placed to support this development project with a solution called YellowJacket - Mace’s own-brand online health and safety management system. It is an easy-to-use tool that Mace Sustain offers to the market on a Software as a Service (SaaS) basis. It is underpinned by a cloud computing model, with customers paying a subscription to use the service to manage their health and safety compliance.

A key feature of the solution is its ability to manage the health and safety aspects through a multi-tiered supply chain. On a large-scale construction project, the primary developer will have sub-contractors who, in turn, will have their own sub-contractors. 

We developed YellowJacket to provide complete visibility of health and safety audits, actions and observations across all these tiers of workers.

Client view

“The ability to monitor every level of health and safety compliance in a major construction project is a huge asset for us. YellowJacket wouldn’t have been possible without Sopra Steria.” David Rowbotham, Director, Mace Sustain
