Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was to develop and test a cloud-based service to measure and validate acquired knowledge in real time. This will provide fewer workplace accidents through higher risk awareness and better retention. The service must be able to measure and validate all types of knowledge acquisition in real time by providing knowledge questions about the subject that will be subject to knowledge control. Backend and front end of the platform are designed and tested with alpha testing with good results. The Risk Awareness service will be launched against the Euro Mine Expo 2018.
Expected results and effects
Market research has been conducted on the need to monitor, measure and validate knowledge of companies where the need for high risk awareness is paramount. Tests with representatives from target groups have been conducted with very positive results. The service will be commercialized in 2018 and the positive work environment effects are expected to be validated in 2019.
Planned approach and implementation
The project was primarily to investigate the need for and develop a "Minimal Viable Product" to control the level of knowledge about fire and evacuation safety and test it against a target group. (Alpha Group) This was done by hiring a computer consultant for the construction of the database. The tests were very positive and the Alpha Group´s response was valuable prior to the 2018 market entry.
