HARM Zero, Safer Sphere, Risk Register

Safer Sphere launches safety innovation ‘HARM Zero’

Safer Sphere has officially announced today that they are launching a new online software tool called ‘HARM Zero‘. The system facilitates design risk management on any construction project helping eliminate hazards, reduce and manage risks and ultimately avoiding any harm from the construction stage of a project right through to a building’s end-use.

The development of the live ‘Hazard And Risk Management’ register system as a significant enhancement on the traditional spreadsheet approach used to identify and manage risks in construction.

The system can be reviewed and updated in real-time, is Building Information Modelling (BIM) compatible and is the modern and innovative approach to managing safety in design.

Jonathan King, Director Safer Sphere said “We are delighted to officially announce the arrival of HARM Zero. This is the culmination of a number of years work, and we believe that this is a unique system with the potential to transform design risk management in the construction industry. HARM Zero will help to bring designers closer to the construction team and end-users through live risk registers offering improved communication through photos, drawings and safety-related reports. We are already using the system on some prestigious projects such as the Gateshead Quays Arena development and the new Old Trafford Cricket Ground stand and the feedback so far has been fantastic.”

Mike Forsyth, Managing Director, Safer Sphere said “A lot of time has been invested in the development of this system, and we are delighted to bring our vision to reality. To officially launch HARM Zero, we are negotiating with a select number of big names in construction who will be coming on board as partners and advocates for the system. These exclusive partners will have unlimited access to the system and will roll it out company-wide, so it is a very exciting time for us and them.”

Safer Sphere will provide a formal announcement of partners in due course.
