When the time came to digitise the construction industry the focus was mainly on automating processes on the delivery side, to boost efficiency and productivity for quicker delivery times. The collaboration was another key area to be digitised; through the implementation of BIM (Business Information Modelling) technology increases in efficiency through automated clash detection, improvement in design deliverable production are just some examples of the benefits. Health and Safety was not the main concern in the BIM movement as evidenced by its inclusion in the British PAS-1192 suite of BIM Standards only in part 6, which was the second last to be drafted.

This is where comes in. With the sole purpose to digitise the health and safety industry. is easy to access and an intuitive messenger platform. It is a mobile-first solution with a globally adopted chat interface, breaking the “formal” barrier of traditional safety methods.

Ultimately, the benefits of adopting a digitised safety method along with AI-enabled tools will allow organisations to make data-based decisions more frequently and to greater effect. Automating the task of data analytics means that the insights generated can be looked at in greater detail, and decisions that need to be made can take place more quickly. Resulting in an improvement in workplace productivity, reducing risks of incidents and enhanced business performances.

Also, by identifying trends and patterns across data collected from the entire workforce, looming health and safety issues can be spotted and corrected far more quickly, making the job of HSE professionals far easier. Workers can also be empowered through access to the data, which can help them identify new areas of improvement, stimulate personal development, and achieve increased engagement.
