With its temporary jobsites and workers, the construction industry poses unique challenges in maintaining safe practices among its employees, contractors, and vendors as they move from one site location to the next.
As jobsites close and new ones open, it’s important that there are consistent systems and processes in place to manage worker and site safety. Some of the challenges faced by the construction industry include:
Diverse workforces of both direct employees and contractors
Labor shortages may mean rushing to bring on untrained, temporary workers
Heavy equipment usage that requires specialized skills and training
Short project durations enhance the need to automate and replicate safety processes
Working in close proximity during COVID fuels additional health and safety risks
At Damstra, we understand how all these risk factors add up. Our Enterprise Protection Platform (EPP) manages and tracks all types of contract workers wherever your jobsites take them. Our EPP solution for Construction includes:
Helps track your workers across all job sites, including contractors and vendors. It ensures that all workers are approved and compliant, as well as manages COVID-related data such as vaccination or testing status, temperature readings, and contact tracing.
Ensures that access is given only to those who are authorized to be on a particular jobsite at a given time.
Ensures that your workers have the appropriate skills, experience, current certifications, and training to keep your entire company safe, especially since many contractors and vendors may not be onsite every day and need to know how to prevent and respond to incidents.
Provides wearables for lone worker safety, biometrics, contact tracing, fall and vehicle collision detection, and continuous connectivity. It provides accurate and auditable details of worker movements through geofencing and beacon technology, and ensures they receive important location-based notifications.
Automates your form and checklist creation in the field, supporting inspections, incident investigations, audits, and other worker safety initiatives. Forms can be prepopulated with real-time data from the EPP or other integrated systems.
Damstra’s EPP keeps your people prepared and equipped, your job sites safe and productive, your assets connected, and information accessible when you need it to ensure your organization is safe, compliant, and efficient. With our expertise in the Construction industry and focus on your workers, the EPP is designed to automate security, health and safety, training, and contractor management across your entire operations to protect and connect your company.
