The Importance of Digitalisation in the Construction Industry

How can digital workflows protect both the company and it’s workers?

Efficiency, safety and productivity are paramount in the construction industry, with the adoption of digital tools becoming essential for maintaining competitive advantage and ensuring compliance with safety regulations. 

Discover how WorkfloPlus can revolutionise operations by providing a seamless, digital solution for managing documentation, enhancing safety protocols, and optimising site operations. 

Streamlined Task Management

WorkfloPlus digitalises human-based or paper processes and automatically creates a digital audit log, which is crucial in an industry where safety and tight project timelines are critical. The platform allows construction managers to create, assign, and monitor tasks in real-time, ensuring that everyone on the site is on the same page. This digital transformation minimises errors, reduces paperwork, and enhances communication among team members, leading to increased productivity and smoother project execution.

Evidential Capture for Proof of Risk Mitigation

One of the main advantages of using WorkfloPlus is its capability for evidential capture, acting as a comprehensive repository for regulatory reports that include both photo and video evidence. This feature is invaluable for recording proof of risk mitigation efforts, such as completed safety checks, proper equipment usage, and compliance with safety protocols. By providing a secure and organised digital archive of visual evidence, WorkfloPlus helps construction companies demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements and effectively manage liability concerns. This functionality provides instant access to the evidence you need to resolve any disputes and also validates the effectiveness of safety measures.

Enhanced Safety Compliance

Safety is always a top priority in construction, and WorkfloPlus plays a significant role in maintaining and enhancing high safety standards. It automates and monitors safety checks, ensuring that all protocols are followed correctly. By digitising these processes, construction companies can easily track compliance and identify potential safety risks before they become issues.

Addressing Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)

HAVS is a serious condition caused by prolonged exposure to vibration from hand-held tools and machinery, common in construction environments. WorkfloPlus provides an effective solution for managing and mitigating the risks associated with HAVS, by creating processes to monitor equipment usage and record the levels of vibration exposure. This data can then be used to ensure that workers do not exceed safe vibration exposure limits. WorkfloPlus, can also be used by construction companies to proactively manage equipment maintenance and worker rotations to significantly reduce the risk of HAVS.

Efficient Site Risk Assessments

Conducting thorough site risk assessments is crucial for identifying potential hazards and implementing preventive measures. WorkfloPlus simplifies this process by creating procedures to ensure every risk is considered so control measures can be put into place, with digital risk assessment reports instantly sent to the office as soon as the task is completed. This ensures that all potential risks can be assessed and with real-time updates  put into place for quick responses to any identified risks.

Improved Training and Onboarding

WorkfloPlus also supports better training and onboarding processes by capturing the knowledge of the most experienced workers in digital work instructions that can be used by the next generation. This ensures that every team member is using the latest best practice method of carrying out safety protocols, using equipment, and completing a task, reducing the time it takes to train new starters or upskill existing workers to enhance overall site safety and productivity.

Real-Time Data and Analytics

One of the main benefits of WorkfloPlus is its ability to provide real-time data and analytics. Construction managers can access up-to-date information on task progress, safety compliance, and risk assessments, enabling data-driven decision-making. This transparency helps in identifying bottlenecks, improving resource allocation, and enhancing overall project efficiency. It also acts as a repository for all the evidence captured throughout each task, providing instant access to photo and video proof of risk mitigation. 

Environmental Benefits

By digitalising procedures with WorkfloPlus you can also contribute to sustainability efforts by reducing the need for paper-based documentation. This not only cuts down on paper waste but also lowers the carbon footprint associated with printing and document storage. The remote worker function also reduces the company's carbon footprint by removing the need for unnecessary travel. By connecting onsite workers with the correct expert to help them solve any issues they come across, it removes the need for the expert to visit the site in person.

Hands-Free Working with Wearable Devices

WorkfloPlus is designed to integrate seamlessly with wearable devices, enabling hands-free working for those who need both hands on the job. Wearable headsets use voice commands to access digital work instructions and safety protocols directly in their line of sight. This allows workers to stay focused on their tasks without having to handle a tablet or mobile. This hands-free capability enhances safety and efficiency, particularly in hazardous environments where full use of both hands is essential.

Digital Transformation Made Easy

The construction industry stands to gain significantly from the adoption of digital tools such as WorkfloPlus. By streamlining operations, enhancing safety compliance, and providing real-time data and analytics, WorkfloPlus helps construction companies improve efficiency and productivity. Its role in managing HAVS risks, providing thorough site risk assessments, and serving as a repository for evidential capture, ensures a safe and compliant working environment. As the industry continues to embrace digital transformation, tools like WorkfloPlus will be integral to driving progress and ensuring sustainable growth.
