BuildSafe overview

What is BuildSafe?

BuildSafe is a collaborative web and mobile safety software for contractors and developers which enables users to streamline deviation management with features for inspections, observation/near-miss/accident reporting, and provides real-time dashboards and analytics. Users are able to respond to deviations, conduct inspections, and report observations, incidents and accidents while onsite via mobile device.

With BuildSafe, organizations can create their own custom templates and enable workers to attach images and comments to deviations, report accidents or near-misses, and receive instant feedback. Team members can work proactively together by reporting both positive and negative observations, and manage a to-do list which enables them to view and resolve any deviations. Dashboards and metrics provide an instant overview of all projects, and help users identify negative trends and prioritize work. Users can be invited to collaborate within a project and user roles can be allocated to each individual to define what they can see and do.

Project statistics allow users to measure the average time it takes for deviations to be resolved, identify common risk areas, and implement actions to mitigate those risks. Organizations can set project goals and evaluate how the changes made affect the project over time. Using BuildSafe’s tools for standardization and compliance, organizations can ensure that routines are properly implemented and complied with, and keep all information securely stored in a single location for complete traceability. Additional features include automatic notifications, customizable tagging categories, and a drag and drop interface.

There are a lot of updates that i as a user and administrator are looking forward to. I strive to see that Buildsafe can make a better product that is even more usable in our line of industry/Construction work with more connectivity and statistics to prevent future accidents.

Pros
Im encouraged how big this is for the construction industry in Sweden. With this Application it gives the possibility to handle the deviations as they come to notice and sends an email directly to our co-workers to handle instantly, you are in the front seat as an projectleader. This application have given us more time to manage our risk and study our future workways. We are looking forward to what more to expect in future upgrades with this application.

Cons
There are Always some minor bugs in this application but it doesn’t interfere with the general experience in overall. We have a good Connection with the developers and the support is an awesome place to gather thoughts and wonderings on how to work with the application and we feel that our demands from the application is meet thru the ultrafriendly people working on this software. I miss out the function to see whats the latest deviation when I open my application in my phone.

A bit expensive, lack of possability to use drawings for pointing out where the deviations are.

Pros
Easy to use overall in the Projects for people with different state of IT maturity.

Cons
Some functions are missing and it takes time to get them implemented in the application.

In general, I think it works wonderfully! A great tool that makes communication and follow up easier and quicker.

Pros
Very user friendly. When i have a question, i get an almost instant answer from the FAQ or the chat function. Great to have both mobile app and desktop platform.

Cons
I wish i could put in a picture when i mark something "green" OK/approved. Right now the only way to put in pictures when something is good is to make a seperate positive obseravation. You cannot put in a picture directly under the point on the inspection if you mark it OK/green. Otherwise if you mark it "red" as something is wrong it comes up where you can add in comments and pictures and assign it to someone to fix. I would like the same function to be able to document with pictures directly under the specific point in the inspection that something was done right and then use the protocols as doumentation for BREEAM, LEED, Svanen, etc.

Response from BuildSafe


Hello Cynthia, thank you so much for the kind review. We really appreciate it! Regarding adding pictures to approved items - I am happy to say we are currently working on this functionality. Would you like to be involved in the pre-launch testing and provide feedback? Let us know :)
