Raken Launches Upgraded Toolbox Talks to Promote Worksite Safety

By Construction Tech Review | Friday, July 05, 2019

The updated feature of Toolbox Talks will streamline the scheduling of safety talks, enabling superintendents and safety managers to focus on the safety of the workers rather than the paperwork.

FREMONT, CA: The construction industry is one of the most dangerous sectors, accounting for 1 in 5 workplace accidents. Of the entire construction site deaths, 38.8 percent were attributed to falls, 9.6 percent struck by an object, 8.6 percent caused by electrocutions, 7.2 percent caught in between objects. The unprecedented fatalities have made it imperative for organizations to adopt the latest technologies to promote worksite safety.

In this regard, Raken, a mobile field management solution provider for the construction industry, recently launched Toolbox Talks, a solution designed to streamline the workflow of essential worksite meetings and enhance safety compliance. The solution can reduce the time taken for routine safety discussions on worksites.

Raken’s digital toolbox facilitates direct interaction between the worksite and the office. It allows the exchange of daily reports, time cards, toolbox talks, photo management, and so on. It has over 4000 clients spread across 92 countries and is being leveraged in around 350,000 projects. The cloud-based SaaS solution will not only improve productivity, but safety as well by simplifying routine tasks such as daily reporting, time tracking, and safety management.

The conventional approach requires superintendents and foremen to find specific toolbox talk online, print it, perform the safety talk, collect the crew signatures, and then email the documents to the office for compliance. However, the updated feature will enable them to schedule and access talks from their mobile devices. It will also allow them to collect signatures on the spot and submit proof of completion directly to the project safety manager.

The new Toolbox Talks feature offers bulk scheduling, enabling safety managers to plan talks for all their projects at once and set schedules for the superintendents. The digital signature capture allows them to gather signatures and store them in a database to track worker attendance. It offers a custom library of approved talks, saving time as well as eliminating paper documents.

Organizations have utilized regular toolbox talks to prioritize safety on construction sites, but organizing and managing the various tasks can be time-consuming and frustrating. The superintendents, foremen, and safety managers often find it challenging to schedule and prepare safety talks, collect signatures, and maintain relevant records. However, the new feature of Toolbox Talks will let them focus on the safety of the construction workers, rather than on the documentation.
