BuildSafe

Web & mobile safety software for contractors & developers

4.4/5 (27 reviews)

BuildSafe Overview

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.

An efficient deviation handling system that works for us

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.

Good. Buildsafe made my everyday job more easy to handle plus if i am away from work my colleagues can follow the deviations in buildsafe them selves. Good tool to show everyone in the Project how we work with Health and safety plus environmental questions.

Pros

It is userfriendly, even a person that is not used to apps or digital workmethods knows and uses Buildsafe at my Company/Project.
Buildsafe has a good design, you can easy find the information you need.
That you can build your own Health and safety round, invite participants and so on.

Cons

It could be translated in to more languages, like polish, russian or latvian.
Has been some problem with the registration but fixed now.

A tool that when fully implemented can be uses to reduce the risk of work site accidents and injuries.

Pros

The flexibility of the software allows us to get a streamlined and scalable usage without compromising management and monitoring of data. Feedback from the end users suggest that Buildsafe has set a new level of what to expect from modern software. The support organization needs to be noted - we could not handle the implementation without that team.

Cons

No software is perfect; there are still some scale effect that needs to be addressed as the usage increased. However, the team behind Buildsafe has more than once proven they are very agile when it comes to fine-tuning the platform as the usage increase.

Response from BuildSafe

Thank you for your kind review Emil, we really appreciate our partnership with you and the whole Skanska team!

Very good product from a company which strives to always improve and broaden the apps functionality.

Pros

The team behind the product is always striving to improve the product and to extend the functionality of the Software. The software itself is a very time-efficient tool which has a lot of potential for developement in the future - implementing more features to enable the sharing of experiences between similar projects in order to, on a more global scale, work as safely as possible.

Cons

Since the product and the team itself is still pretty new on the market, and since there are no other tools like it - there are some minor hurdles for them to overcome and some minor issues to fix until the product will reach 100% functionality. It is still pretty restricted, but the team is super motivated and with the help of their costumers feedback they have all the possibility in the world to achieve this and more.

Response from BuildSafe

Thank you for the kind words Jones - we will keep working hard to provide a world class product!

Pros

I use this software for taking safetyrounds. I do however feel the true value in this software lies in its unused potential not originally featured, with a bit of tinkering I'm able to set up almost all my admisitrative tasks trough BuildSafes software.

It does a good job keeping you informed about deviations or faults beeing reported troughout projects!

Cons

Missing features. It could make the software a gamechanger in the construction market.
