Join the APS Hackathon

Posted: 31st January 2017

The Association for Project Safety together with Hack_Construct are looking to run a hackathon event in Manchester on the 17th – 19th March. The first ever health and safety event of its kind: this is a chance to get together with digital technology experts over 3 days, to produce an actual or prototype solution to a real – world health and safety problem. The event is free to attend and this jam packed event is one not to be missed.

So what is a hackathon?
A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers and other subject matter experts, collaborate intensively to solve real – world problems.

Why attend?

  • Be part of the first health and safety event of its kind
  • It’s free
  • Get the chance to hone your creativity and innovation skills
  • Help solve real – life health and safety problems that affect the health and lives of those in the construction industry
