IKM Visual Solutions are very proud to have collaborated on the development of the Safety Induction materials used on the Queensferry Crossing Project, which was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen last week.

The bridge is the longest three tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world and is 1.7 miles long. A consortium of organisations was involved in producing this innovative engineering design.

Co-ordinating safety inductions for a massive workforce had its challenges and IKMVS were asked to provide a digital solution to help engage, inform, and train all participants on the project.

The induction programme was produced using 3D visualisations to minimise language barriers and increase awareness of safe working practices. The delivery time was also reduced by 75%.

Having a diverse workforce comprised of varying learning levels and languages called for a more innovative approach to developing materials – particularly as they needed to be easily adapted to the changing needs of a long-term project.
We’ve had the pleasure of working on many large-scale and technically challenging projects over the years and the step change in how we use technology to communicate and train people is vastly different now to what it was 10 years ago. 3D Video and Virtual Reality applications will very soon become a standard way of delivering information on a wide scale.
