Health and Safety Manager

We help Health and Safety Managers manage

As a Health and Safety Manager, you care deeply about the safety of your staff.

But from speaking to professionals like you on a daily basis, we know there are universal issues with frontline reporting and data administration that make you more susceptible to fines, NCRs, and even increased risk.

Nutshell helps manage these health and safety processes with standardised frontline reports that can be logged and administrated instantly, with approval steps to ensure you get the right data every time.

No more missing or incomplete reports

Staff are failing to log regular reports, or leaving sections blank. This means you have to spend time chasing down health and safety data to progress with the project and prevent risk, or run the risk of a fine or NCR should you be audited.

With the average construction fine being around £110,000, these pesky missing reports could soon lead to a devastating penalty.

Health and Safety managers are harnessing Nutshell’s digital inspections and checklists to ensure all forms and sheets are completed in full. Workers can access these reports on their mobile phones, and are prevented from submitting them until all required data is included.

Get the right data every time

Missing data may be spotted in time, but bad data often isn’t identified until the eventual mistake is made. Bad data in the planning stage leads to design failures, while bad daily reporting can impact work delivery and safety on site.

All Nutshell reports include data validation, so you can specify the length and format in which data needs to be submitted to ensure it’s compatible with your back-end systems.

It can be text, numbers, images, or even location data, and workers can’t submit the report until it’s either in the right format, or their manager is happy with it. This is a blessing when faced with a Health and Safety audit!

Access and submit reports instantly

Reporting on paper means workers must take time to hunt down the right form, not to mention the cost of printing and filing these documents, estimated at around £280 per head each year (that’s £14k for just 50 staff).

With Nutshell, all daily and safety-critical reports are available in the palm of your hand, and can be accessed instantly to ensure risk is recorded and addressed immediately.

What’s more, these reports can update your health and safety documentation automatically, with app links and process flows to ensure you’re always singing from the same hymn sheet.

Reduce costs and admin workload with streamlined data processing

Report data needs to be processed and actioned in enough time to prevent risk. But when reports are done on paper, admin staff can have a real hard time processing inconsistent, sometimes illegible information.

Nutshell’s data validation tools ensure reports are always logged in an optimal format. What’s more, they’re immediately submitted to back office without the need for manual collection or processing – you can even integrate with your back-office system to completely streamline administration.

Ensure safety and compliance by tracking competencies through induction and beyond

Gaps in your induction process increase risk and cause compliance headaches. Individual competencies need to be recorded, with an audit trail to confirm workers have been given a proper onboarding with full training.

With a site worker being three times more likely to suffer an injury in their first month, safe working practices need to be instilled from day one.

Nutshell’s onboarding checklists ensure a full step-by-step induction process, where competencies and training are recorded in real-time. Your induction pack can also be updated whenever necessary, so materials never go out of date.
