Working with leading construction and project management companies, Trade Assist faced a unique problem in implementing health and safety practices with their staff throughout several locations at any one time.
Each site was operating a different health and safety system, with staff considering the approach a drawn-out and disjointed paperwork process. As with most companies, this meant near misses and accidents were considered more of a paperwork burden.
With the current multitude of differing processes, generating a clear and consistent picture of health and safety was difficult. Trade Assist HR Manager Chris Constanti says they would “end up with a blurred picture at the end of the day.”
Trade Assist decided that good health and safety management meant automatic processes that escalated problems in real time, combined with an easy to use system for all staff.
It also had to be mobile friendly for an entire workforce, enabling all staff to easily report accidents or near misses within minutes, and not wait or work across large development sites to report it. This was a major loss in production time.
