Safety in Built Environment Boosted by New Manifesto Encouraging Engineering Firms to Share Data
10 Oct 2019
Engineering companies and the government are being encouraged to publish, use and share data openly in a bid to increase safety in our built environment, according to a new manifesto published today.
The manifesto, set out by the Open Data Institute and Lloyd’s Register Foundation, has been widely endorsed by engineering firms (including Mott Macdonald, Arup, Bryden Wood and Tideway) and the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Health and Safety Executive.
One core principle of the manifesto is that the government and the private sector should share and open datasets to increase access to data that will drive safety innovation and support research. The data should be better used to solve specific challenges and enable collaboration across the private sector, start-ups and researchers.
It is hoped that the manifesto will bring benefits for society as well as for individual businesses by fostering improved working conditions, innovation and productivity.
