Health and Safety Manager

We help Site Managers manage

As a Site Manager, you need to have complete visibility of the construction site as a whole, including the workers and processes at play within it. 

But common issues such as inaccurate reporting, a lack of employee competency tracking, and incomplete audit trails are jeopardising quality control at each stage of a project. 

Nutshell provides Site Managers with real-time communication and a clear workflow so you have constant visibility of all areas of the project, helping you manage more effectively while increasing safety on site.

Non-Conformance Reporting

No more blind spots

Construction site management is a tricky role to work within when site inspections and checklists are on paper, especially when taking into consideration how large a site can be. 

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has identified supervision as a ”Performance Influencing Factor” when attempting to prevent accidents on-site. It’s therefore a prime focus when planning and running a construction project that health and safety is effectively managed.

Nutshell’s site management systems ensure you can see at a glance everything that’s happening on site, from health and safety processes to daily reporting. It’s available in real time on a single digital platform, available through your handheld device.

No more inconsistent, inaccurate data

Data quality is imperative for improving safety, but standardised reporting is often disregarded when using paper-based processes out on site, where it’s easy to forget, misplace, or damage specific forms. This practice leaves gaping holes in your project documentation.

A staggering 45% of construction professionals report spending more time than expected on non-optimal activities, with the biggest culprits being fixing mistakes and looking for project data.

Nutshell provides uniform, easy-to-use site management templates for every process, all saved to the cloud and accessible anywhere from your personal device. And workers are prevented from continuing to the next stage of approval until they have completed all the required fields, making missing data a thing of the past.

Complete audit trails

When using paper-and-pen processes, it’s all too common to have missing or incorrect information that needs to be chased down. As a Site Manager, you have the problem of concluding who exactly needs chasing, but you certainly don’t have time to be playing detective with your hectic schedule.

Nutshell provides accountability and quality control by logging all site management processes safely in the cloud. This information can be accessed by a Site Manager at any time, anywhere, clearly showing where a piece of documentation is up to in the sign-off process and who it’s currently sitting with.

Paper form frustration
Poor ergonomics

Clear workflows for every process

A survey conducted by KPMG found 69% of construction projects were over budget by more than 10%. This can rise to a staggering 80% over budget with large projects.

One of the main culprits causing increased project costs is an unclear site workflow; this leads to wasted money and time on processes that aren’t managed efficiently or need to be corrected. Not to mention the considerable fines and NCRs a construction business could incur with a failed site inspection or audit. 

A clear, uniform workflow ensures everyone is on the same page. Nutshell’s site management workflows can be created in an easily understood format, as well as being accessible to all involved at any time or place — you can refer back to a workflow with just the press of a button.

Up-to-date inductions and competencies

While we’re in an exciting and active period for the construction industry, it also means that new, inexperienced workers are being recruited. If those without the specialised skills needed for a given project are assigned to work on it anyway, this is where danger can arise. 

However, it can prove to be an administrative nightmare trawling through induction and training documentation to find the best people for the job, especially when this documentation isn’t kept up to date.

Nutshell’s site induction checklist makes it simple for Site Managers to immediately see who has what competency, who needs more support, and who is qualified to lead on a specific project. This information is updated and stored in the cloud, making it easier than ever to manage competencies.
