Our client’s daily safety risk assessment suffered from compliance issues, with some staff failing to either complete the risk assessment paperwork in the field, or only partially or retrospectively completing it. The assessments could also take some time to return from the field, putting pressure on the back- office team who had to cope with filing and reporting the returns. Plus, hard copies didn’t provide for the capture of photographs and couldn’t independently validate time and location details.
HOW APPCAN HELPED
By turning their risk assessment form into a ‘Data Collector’ application in AppCan, they issued the app to all their team leaders’ iPhones. Their teams welcomed this, as it was quicker, and they liked the facility to photograph evidence of any hazards identified on site.
AppCan provided our client with clear, daily summaries of all the risk assessment submissions returned from site by their teams. And using AppCan’s ‘Form Builder’, they designed a suitable template to print out individual risk assessments whenever they needed a hard copy. They also used ‘Form Builder’ to create a summary table, which they used for weekly and monthly management reporting of their risk assessment submissions.
