The GPS Room: An Additional Set of Eyes on Safety

In GTE’s Bogotá office, engineers are constantly on the lookout for potential hazards and opportunities to improve safe work management practices, watching live feeds across GTE’s field operations from 50 different cameras streaming 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the “Getting Performance Standard” (GPS) room.

The GPS room has been at the heart of the Company’s strong safety performance each year, driving forward the culture of safety. Since the GPS room was introduced the number of interventions, including those originating in the field, has increased. The GPS room and the growth of the culture of intervention has also resulted in better standardization of work practices across all of GTE’s operations in Colombia.
