Risk Assessment Apps

Assess, monitor, and mitigate risks in the workplace or out on site with Nutshell’s risk assessment apps. They’re all ready-built, 100% customisable to your workflow and come free with a Nutshell subscription…

What is a risk assessment app?

You’ll agree that safety is at the core of every project, and that applies whether you’re in a construction or engineering environment, or based on a retail shop floor. But paper forms aren’t fit for purpose with safety-critical processes — risks take too long to be communicated and processed, to the detriment of workplace safety.

Risk Assessment apps are designed to replace your paper- and spreadsheet-based risk assessment templates with a standardised cloud solution that staff can access on their mobile phones, whenever needed. Safety-critical information can be logged, interpreted and stored compliantly, and actioned in good time to prevent further risk.

How do I choose a risk assessment mobile app?

Giving workers a clear and easy risk assessment process is fundamental for identifying and then actioning risks. Depending on your work environment, you may be looking for a tool that identifies general risks, or specific risks around equipment, vehicles, and work processes.

With a General Risk Assessment App, you can log all the necessary daily and discretionary inspections, and even capture photographic evidence of the risk to support your case. This information can then be automatically pulled through to daily briefings or safe work packs to navigate perceived risks.

Our Construction Risk Assessment App is more tailored to the physical industries — construction, rail, and engineering. These reports are required by regulatory bodies, and so have been built to industry standard to ensure compliance.

Nutshell customers have also found our Dynamic Risk Assessment app particularly useful for monitoring ongoing risk throughout a project. These apps are particularly powerful when linked with our Risk Assessment Method Statement app, which can be updated automatically throughout a project to document perceived risks and safe systems for navigating or overcoming these safety challenges.

Why Nutshell?

The trouble with off-the-shelf risk assessment software is that it rarely talks to the rest of your business software. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow, expensive and leads to mistakes and data blind-spots… which defeats the object in going digital in the first place.

Imagine if your risk assessment report could alert your mobile briefing app when an obstructive risk is identified, all on its own. Well, with Nutshell it can.

Nutshell apps are 100% customisable to your business. Not just the superficial stuff – every part of your workflow, from data-capture and line-manager approval, to processing, reporting and integrating with your existing back-office systems.
