Taking a proactive, preventative approach to safety is arguably the best and most cost-effective way to improve safety (and to avoid costly shut-downs) on a construction site.
One simple way to implement such a strategy is to conduct regular, formal safety inspections and walkthroughs to carefully catalog issues, to assign for resolution, and to get the data you need to monitor trends. But without the right tools, these safety inspections can be seen as an added burden – with more paper getting passed around, more signatures needed, more confusion about the exact nature of the problem – rather than what they are: an effective way to keep workers safe and to keep the project moving forward.
You could quickly and easily log safety issues, out in the field, as you encountered them in real-time. You’d be able to tag issues with severities (e.g. high, medium, or low hazard.) and categories (e.g., barricades, fall potentials, electrical danger, and so on). You could make things crystal clear and overcome potential language barriers by attaching photos and even adding mark-ups like arrows and circles to leave no doubts. And you could dynamically filter issues by tag to identify trends and see if there are persistent safety problems that aren’t being addressed fast enough.
Bridgit makes improving safety less complicated by giving you exactly what you need to log issues in the field, add the details that you need, organize everything, assign for fixes, and run reports to identify trends and to show progress.
The tags are something that help us the most in Bridgit. You’re able to nail exactly what you’re looking at, and they allow us to filter our issues to see trends. When I filter by the tag, I can identify trends. So if we have 20 tasks under one category, I know we have a problem with that safety issue. Even the guys who are not so technically inclined have told me that they enjoy using the software. They really like the photos, because there’s no confusion. The photo is clear and you can’t miss the issue. The inspections are done so fast. You complete it right then and there, on the site. Issues go directly to the person responsible, and when they fix it they can send a picture to show that it’s done.
