The app boosting on-site safety and productivity
3DSafety has released its smartphone app which aims to raise the level of on-site safety and productivity.
Major players in the construction space, including John Holland and Acciona, are already reporting these results from using the 3DSafety app: a sophisticated, simple-to-use application.
By digitising every aspect of operations, from either a project or business-as-usual perspective, 3DSafety takes the time and guesswork out of safety and governance while increasing productivity.
“When people take it up, they can’t speak highly enough of it. When a contractor uses it then goes onto a new project without it, they wonder, ‘Why aren’t you using 3D Safety?’,” 3DSafety director Simon Morrow says.
This is no fly-by-night tech company. The company’s founders have “blue-collar DNA”, with more than three decades in compliance management, workplace health and safety and industry-specific safety training.
“We’ve got boots on the ground. We’ve been selling safety equipment for 25 years. This technology is now an additional component to the way we address the issues of safety and productivity on site,” Simon adds.
3DSafety address these issues by improving governance and changing behaviours – which is already a critical conversation currently being had at executive and board level within various industries.
“Changing risky behaviour on site is one of the leading ways to reduce risk and improve safety. Traditionally, safety reporting is reactive; it looks at the end result, such as how many near misses, how many injuries, rather than the cause and the drivers behind it. That’s why we say behaviour’s so important; behaviour is the driver,” Simon explains.
With 3DSafety, logging almost every aspect of people, plant and process information becomes simple. In fact, there’s almost no detail that can’t be logged, and the info can be easily accessed at any time, providing transparency around compliance and governance.
