Protective power-ups – How safety management software enhances building and construction safety

Protective power-ups - How safety management software enhances building and workforce safety

Digitization and technological advancements have enabled construction firms to take an efficient approach to their operations and helped in safeguarding work environments. Safety management software helps streamline safety-related tasks, identify hazards, and prompt administrators to take corrective measures before things get out of hand. 

Construction sites are highly accident-prone. According to a report by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the construction industry accounted for 1008 deaths in 2020, which was 21% of all workplace deaths for that year. Investing in safety management software is critical for construction firms now more than ever. 

How can safety management software help in construction and workforce safety?

Go back to the old days when construction safety itself was not secure. Today, we have access to tools that enable us to manage safety risks and hazards more effectively than ever before. Safety management software has revolutionized the way organizations approach safety management.

Safety management software allows accessing data in real-time, conducting root cause analysis, storing, and managing safety-related data, and allow storing inventory and inspection data. 

Safety management software can enhance safety on construction sites by facilitating several other tasks-

  • Hazard identification: Safety management software can be used to identify potential hazards on construction sites. Workers can use the software to document and report any hazard they come across. This will allow safety professionals to take appropriate action.
  • Training and education of workers: Safety management software can be used to deliver training and education to workers. They can be educated in fall protection practices like the proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as harnesses, lanyards, and anchor points.
  • Inspection and maintenance: Safety management software can be used to schedule and track inspections of construction equipment Routine inspection will ensure that they are in good working order and compliant with relevant safety standards, which will further help in preventing equipment failure and reduce the risk of accidents.
  • Incident reporting and investigation: In the event of an incident, safety management software can be used to document the incident and initiate an investigation. This can help identify the root cause of the incident and inform measures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

Now can we enhance the capabilities of safety management tools? Perhaps we can turn to AI for that. Artificial Intelligence has emerged as a global disruptor helping industries to optimize their operations, improve their products and services, and drive innovation. It can analyze large amounts of data and identify patterns and insights.

AI-based safety management tools could boost construction safety further. It can help in predictive maintenance, quality control, and real-time monitoring of workers. Increased safety means reduced mishaps which further means less damage incurred! According to a report from kpa.ioconstruction workplace injuries and fatalities cost companies a whopping $151 billion per year!

How can we increase construction safety even further?

Now we have discussed using technology, more specifically safety management tools to boost safety on construction sites. But there are a few hands-on methods that can be enforced for better worker safety-

  • Conduct safety training: Proper training of all workers on safety procedures, equipment operation, and emergency response plans.
  • Clear communication: Ensure effective communication between the workers and management to prevent misunderstandings and potential safety hazards.
  • Enforce safety policies: Establish and enforce safety policies that all workers must follow to maintain a safe work environment.
  • Routine inspections: Regularly inspect the job site, tools, and equipment to ensure they are in good working condition.
  • Use personal protective equipment (PPE): Make it mandatory for workers to use PPE such as hard hats, safety glasses, and gloves.
  • Encourage worker involvement: Encourage workers to identify and report potential safety hazards and involve them in safety improvement initiatives.
  • Have safety policies and procedures in place: Have proper safety policies in place. This will allow you to establish clear guidelines and procedures for maintaining a safe work environment while helping you to comply with relevant safety regulations and standards.
