UC is celebrating the work of Alexandria Garlan and Mitchell Harmer:

Creating an app for construction workers to sign on or off site using just their smart phone has won University of Canberra students over $35,000 in prize money at the Innovation ACT awards.

Mitchell Harmer and Alexandria Garlan were part of a team of four ACT students who won the competition’s major prize ($25,000), as well as the ACT Government prize ($10,000) and the pitch award ($750), to put towards perfecting their application ‘Sign on site’.

“The app is basically like a Facebook check-in for construction sites,” Mr Harmer, an entrepreneur and innovation student, said. “It’s a simple, user-friendly interface but there’s a lot going on behind the scenes for accurate reporting, which will ensure workers’ safety and could also save company money.
