Unlocking Innovation in Construction Safety: Join the Smarter Regulation Sandbox


London – February 26th, 2024 – In an exciting development for the tech and construction industries, Safetytech Accelerator, in collaboration with Discovering Safety (a programme of work led by Great Britain’s Health and Safety Executive, HSE), announces the opening of registrations for the Smarter Regulation Sandbox (SRS) project. This initiative promises to harness the power of digital technology to revolutionise safety and efficiency in the construction sector. 

Bridging the Gap Between Regulation and Technology 

The Smarter Regulation Sandbox is a ground breaking programme that aims to make health and safety regulatory information more accessible and actionable for organisations. By leveraging regulations and data, tech companies and construction firms can develop innovative solutions that accelerate compliance, enhance efficiency, and ultimately foster a safer working environment. 

A Call to Innovators and Problem-Solvers 

We are actively seeking participation from: 

  • Tech companies: Whether you are a start up or an established enterprise provider, if you have ideas on how to incorporate regulations and health and safety data into new or existing products, this sandbox is for you. 
  • Construction companies: If you face challenges that could be mitigated through the digitalisation of data assets—be it optimising compliance or boosting your organisation’s efficiency—this programme offers a unique opportunity to find solutions. 

Collaborate, Innovate, and Transform 

The Smarter Regulation Sandbox is more than just a programme; it’s a collaborative ecosystem where tech innovators and construction professionals come together to test and develop ideas that address real-world problems. Participants will have the chance to be matched up within the sandbox, fostering partnerships that could lead to breakthroughs in the industry.
