Re-flow launches #RecordReportReduce
A January 2020 survey conducted for Re-flow by YouGov found that only 17% of the public showed concern that enough is being done to keep roadworkers safe. This is in stark contrast to the rising number of incidents being reported by those working in the highways sector.
While awareness is rising, many of these incidents are being reported too late for any reasonable action to be taken to improve the safety and working environment for highways operatives, leaving them exposed.
Re-flow software, which is primarily a mobile workforce job management system comes with a feature that enables the immediate recording and reporting of such incidents. This has aided existing users to give a highly accurate accounts, resulting in quick action being taken and being able to prove or rebuff insurance claims.
Reflow's #RecordReportReduce campaign began as we saw how much our app was being used to report near misses for road workers. After hearing some shocking stories of incidents where people working on the UK highways network were being abused or put at risk by dangerous driving, we began raising awareness of the importance of recording an incident as soon as it happens to ensure something can be done about it.
In three easy steps, Re-flow can make a huge improvement to site safety:
If you work in the highways sector and have been affected by an incident where a motorist or pedestrian has behaved in an intimidating, abusive or careless way that has made you feel unsafe, mistreated or annoyed, please tell us about it here. Every submission is anonymous.
