App makes construction site safety simple
Name of product | BuildSafe
Price | Monthly subscription fee per project. Enterprise solutions available.
Target audience | Construction, business development, project and safety managers
Challenges | Construction projects have been facing two main challenges for many years: low productivity and high rates of work-related accidents, both of which lead to large costs for companies in the sector. One of the root causes for these challenges is the industry’s low adoption rate of digital tools for key processes such as on-site collaboration and communication.
Solution | BuildSafe is the digital tool where the whole project team can easily report, follow-up and analyse risks and disturbances on site. All inspection types, observations, incidents and accidents are reported in one format and tasks are automatically distributed to the people in charge. Unnecessary administration is eliminated and crucial information instantly reaches the right people.
Working digitally allows for powerful real-time data that helps managers evaluate frequent risk areas, current lead-times, overall compliance and sub-contractor performance.
Results | Construction companies that use BuildSafe are able to streamline work-flows, strengthen relations with clients and suppliers, ensure standardisation and increase overall project involvement. BuildSafe says sites using its app have reduced risk by 70 % and save 1,000 hours annually. BuildSafe is working with many large contractors and developers. Skanska is currently rolling out BuildSafe on all their sites in Sweden and BuildSafe is now focusing on growth in the UK market.
