4D safety inductions for HS2 workers

A specialist online ‘4D’ training tool has been developed to give safety inductions to operatives working on HS2 sites.

The Balfour Beatty/Vinci joint venture developed the tool with BIM and digital twin specialist 3D Repo and 4D consultancy Freeform. The platform allows users to visualise project sites in 3D, with overlays of useful information for their virtual induction.

James Bowles, Founder of Freeform, said to Construction Enquirer: “4D models use graphical and non-graphical project information including time, resource, and logistics management to create more predictable, robust plans and sequences.

“With 3D Repo, we are developing a novel online tool which allows for simple planning and visualisation of intricate tasks to improve health and safety not only on HS2, but for the entire construction industry.”
