Costein Near Miss Reporting

Project brief

The brief was to design and develop a local system that would encourage “Near Miss Reporting” on-site at the London Bridge redevelopment for Costain through Hard Hat Media.  The kiosk allowed the workforce on-site to fill in Near Miss Reports through an interactive on-screen eForm or survey.  This allowed Costain to review complete eForms via their management console and greatly increase the number of Near Miss reports submitted.

I designed the software infrastructure and undertook software development for:

  • Kiosk lockdown function, installation and software configuration,
  • Configuration of local web site hosting platform using Apache and PHP,
  • Web site development for the eForm or survey,
  • Integration with Costain’s management console backend.


  • Kiosk environment preparation and development,
  • Apache and PHP platform set up on a local PC,
  • PHP, JQuery, Javascript and HTML,
  • Imaging of the hard drive for future duplication,
  • Adobe Photoshop for image preparation.
