Safety on the construction site should be every worker and manager’s top priority. For a construction safety manager specifically, if you don’t have secure safety processes in place, you could be putting many lives at risk. This includes both individual workers and the overall safety of the projects that are produced.
To make this role even more complicated, safety protocols now extend past ensuring workers are wearing the right PPE and properly trained. With the spread of COVID-19 still a threatening factor in 2021, these construction safety managers have their work cut out for them, more now than ever before.
In this blog, our team at Safe Site Check In explores the pain points that these construction safety managers are facing, and how a digital safety tool can combat these challenges.
Challenges Construction Safety Managers Face
There are quite a few pain points and needs that construction safety managers must find solutions for in order to establish seamless safety processes. First, as we mentioned before, they need to ensure that all site visitors are safety trained/certified in accordance with their role on the job site. These safety managers need to ensure that this information is easily accessible and can be updated immediately in case a certification expires, a new hire is onboarded, or new training is required for a worker to continue their work.
Another general safety factor that construction safety managers need to have a firm handle on is knowing who is on the job site at any given time. While referring to written daily logs may seem sufficient, construction projects have a lot of moving parts, especially when it comes to managing multiple locations. With any delivery or project delay comes the need for updating site visitor data in real-time so that safety managers can make adjustments as needed to ensure the job site is secure.
Finally, when it comes to navigating new pandemic protocols, construction safety managers face the challenge of keeping up with ever-changing mandates that must be followed in order to keep their sites open safely. This includes the need for emergency broadcasting as new protocols are implemented and establishing ways to implement health screening that doesn’t disrupt the daily workflow.
