the challenge
Managing a growing team and implementing an easy-to-use and consistent OH&S system across all projects.
Hard to track progress of each jobTracking site progress when scaling a business is difficult
Trades find existing software difficult to useMost software platforms are old, clunky and complicated to use
Poor support from overseas productsDifficult to rely on digital solutions that don’t have local support teams
the solution
BuildPass gives Garath and Hill oversight of all of their projects from a central hub, and enables them to implement a comprehensive and consistent safety system.
Centralised hub for all projectsSafety processes across all jobs are centralised into a central hub. A simple process is followed to collect SWMS, Insurances, Tickets and SDS, and all documents are immediately available on any device at any time.
Site DiariesSite managers can easily add a site diary each day from their mobile phone. The weather and site attendance are automatically filled in, and images go into an image gallery for Garath and Hill to review. The calendar view makes for easy navigation.
