Britain’s record as one of the best in the world when it comes to health and safety is hard earned. It’s no coincidence that, according to the HSE, in the year ending March 2017 deaths in the construction industry were at an all-time low, with only 30 recorded fatalities.
Maintaining an enviable H&S record requires all those involved in the construction industry to ensure innovation is at the heart of their business.
Assure360, a company unrivalled experience of the asbestos removal industry, has now released an app that aims to transform H&S within construction businesses, including detailed real-time auditing and recording across all areas of safety management.
The software is backed by a powerful and secure database that enables those in the construction industry to collect H&S findings on site and record them on the intuitive and simple to use app.
Findings are then analysed by the cloud database and actions automatically flow to the managers that can make the most impactful changes.
The workflow lets users track close out, so nothing gets forgotten, while the dashboard presents the most important information so users can prioritise and identify what matters most.
“Assure360 allows us to quickly and easily audit sites along with report, track and investigate H&S incidents,” said Andrew Le Marie, Group Head of H&S at Breyer Group.
“The cloud database lays all the information I need to do my job on a plate. I can instantly understand what our findings are telling us.
“Reporting to the board is no longer something I have to take weeks to prepare for - everything is at the touch of a button.
“What is even better is that the system is so easy to use, it is no longer me and my team that ‘do H&S’ - all the contracts managers and directors participate.”
This is a sentiment echoed by Nick Garland, Founder of Assure360: “With Assure360, it’s no longer just the H&S manager who ‘does H&S’,” he said.
“It strengthens the whole company’s safety culture. All of this will help construction businesses to protect their staff and contractors when on site and to identify areas of risk.”
The app is free to download and is available on the App Store.
