Tools for Site Safety Management
Statistically, many work place accidents still take place in the construction industry. It is estimated, that construction companies save $4-$6 for every $1 spent on safety programs. Electronic tools provide a reliable basis for site safety management. Below we have listed the additional tools in Nopsa for improving site safety.
Construction site inductions
With Nopsa, you can fill in details of completed inductions in real-time at the construction site using a mobile device. The use of an electronic, real time induction process ensures all inductions are carried out to the same high standard. Updates can be easily made if changes to conditions, methods, equipment or procedures at the work place occur. Project-specific induction forms can be easily customized to match the requirements of each unique job site. The forms can be completed, signed and uploaded following the induction, and immediately available for safety inspection.
Worker competency management
Safety regulations require specific competency and skills for tasks around a project site. With Nopsa, your company can define competencies that are required on site. Competency information and proof can be collected and stored easily for inspection.
Site Safety Measurement
With Nopsa, construction site safety measurement can be performed electronically on a mobile device. The measurer goes through a list of potential construction site safety hazards and marks their observations for each hazard in Nopsa. The measurer determines whether each of these objects at the site has been completed in a safe or unsafe manner. Photographs can be taken of potential safety hazards. These remarks along with the photograph can be emailed automatically to the contractors, who are responsible for fizing the hazard. Nopsas’ safety measurement meter is based on the TR-meter 2010 form used in Finland.
