    As constructors we know safety is crucial at all times! But, having team members not follow, or even worse know, safety protocols is just one thing that can cause us stress and anxiety in the workplace.

    So how can we deal better with this and all the other challenges we face daily - such as having to call the entire team just to make sure jobs get done in a safe manner, or update team members -one by one-  that there is a training they need to complete regarding a certain tool, or a new regulation to complete in order to stay safe and compliant? Only to then go ahead and figure out how to know who read, who didn’t read, document everything in folders..yes, we deal with a lot! That’s why I suggest you use Connecteam, a platform built for managers - with a lot of different capabilities that extremely ease communications and operations - helping you get a clear and live overview of your business - while giving your employees one central and simple app dedicated for work.

    Any business, especially construction, requires us to know what’s going on at all times. But, how can we be in the high level of things and not the bits and bites, in order to be able to actually also have the time to build the business and take it forward? Because, see, whether we want it or not - we find ourselves dealing with the bits and bites - if we don’t have the right tool to operate our business. And by that I mean - if we are doing things manually instead of digitally. Now, I’m not talking about making sheets on excel or just texting instead of calling - I’m talking about whole new levels of doing things digitally - from knowing our employees clocked in at the right place and time, knowing our employees know the job they need to do, knowing what’s going on in the filed by receiving live forms or checklists - these all can be and should be done digitally! Not to mention your younger employees who work and live digitally, and expect to get that in their workplace as well. And if this sounds like fiction, it’s not - just switch to Connecteam - a platform built for managers - with a lot of different capabilities that helps you truly manage your business and gives you back time to focus on what you need, while giving your employees the work experience they expect to get in 2023 going on 2024.

    Rules, compliance, regulations - these are all super critical things! We use tools that require high safety standards, we have to meet compliance and regulations at all times - not just for governmental issues, but actually if we don’t - we’re risking our own employees. Every tool requires a different kind of training and understanding of how to operate it safely, every rule needs to be fully understood, who’s qualified to do certain jobs and who’s not, hazard reports - all these are important things we managers must take care of to keep safety high at all times!! Now, getting it done is way harder than talking about it, but luckily there is a platform I’ve found that can help out with everything I just mentioned!

    A great software called Connecteam - which has training and quizzes that you can build in any way you’d like to make sure your employees always know how to handle certain tools, you can see who’s done a certain course of quiz, who didn’t complete it and can’t work with a certain tool until they do. You also have the ability for an update if there’s a new regulation you need everybody to be aware of ASAP - and also an easy overview screen to see who saw it. Plus, their schedule allows you to add limitations for certain jobs, so if one of your employees is not qualified to do a certain job, the system will automatically notify you about it. The platform offers a lot more - such as easy access to playbooks, or hazard reports - just check them out for yourself.
