The construction industry has had one of the highest injury rates compared to almost any other sector. The reasons for this are a culture of safety ignorance, hazardous working conditions and a heavy use of contractors who are difficult to pin-down. For larger construction companies with greater financial incentives, more formal work procedures have long been established resulting in declining injury rates. However, for smaller firms like Team Construction, job sites continue to be very high risk work environments and they are trapped between limited resources and more stringent regulations.
While Team Construction is not a large company, they wanted to tackle safety issues as if they were. What they needed was an affordable, easy-to-use safety management system to create a highly disciplined, safety-focused operation and approached us to see if we could help. Partnering closely with Team Construction, we were able to take advantage of S2Web’s modular components to create a cost-effective workplace safety software ‘package’ that matches their needs for improved safety awareness, hazard reduction and contractor management.
