Operations Workflow Management, The Good Old Days
In the golden age of digitized workflows, construction Supervisors struggled to make do with spreadsheet databases and hand written paper reports. It was an age not so long ago and sometimes still invasive today wherein work crews, office staff and management all functioned via individualized methods of record keeping. And due to this lack of coordinated workflow management, contractors paid and yet do pay a high price as revealed by less efficient operations management, lower jobsite productivity and ineffective on-the-job accident control.
For contractor Safety Professionals burdened to hand write the particulars of safety meetings, safety incident forms and safety inspection results, keeping up often forced and yet forces sporadic compliance and short-changing in documentation. In fact, the “good old days” of construction workflow and safety management encompassed long hours on documentation that often failed to have any measurable impact on the number of accumulated jobsite accidents. But that was the “good old days,” a time when accidents could have been prevented…
– if only the workers had received safety notices in a timely manner.
Importance of Proper and Accurate Construction Safety Records
Failed compliance with certain ISO or OSHA requirements can result in costly fines, delayed project completion and a lousy company reputation. Moreover, and most important of all, failed compliance can result in serious worker injuries even to the level of death.
Yet compliance is not merely about documenting certain events. Rather it must also include the ability to recover, share and update said data as necessary. Lost or missing safety records serve no better use than incomplete or never created safety records.
