How Capturing Visual Images has helped Scaffolding Operations

An estimated 2.3 million construction workers (roughly 65% of the entire construction industry), work on or with scaffolds*. Observers would agree that scaffolding operations involve a complex asset base of resources (both man and material). Moreover, scaffolding operations entail many complex but mandatory safety processes that have contributed to losses in kind and cash if not followed accurately.

One clear observation in scaffolding operations is the need for identifying work sites and its complexities. Any normal scaffold cycle would include requests, permits, multiple approval points, certificates, maintaining of records and multiple communication with authorities at different levels. Most of these systems are paper driven and hence lack the accuracy that minute detailing can provide.



How Floor-maps are Reducing Losses Incurring from Scaffolding Operations

Scaffolding operations entail many complex but mandatory safety processes that have contributed to losses in kind and cash if not followed accurately. One of the most common losses observed, is in relation to material losses involved in the erection and dismantling operations of scaffolds.

Most of the leading contractors (heavy infrastructure and engineering) have large areas covered in a single project. Such an operation might require multiple scaffolding sites. Most of these operations entail paper driven systems that take a whole lot of time and are cumbersome. Sometimes it becomes extremely difficult for authorities to accurately track the existence (or non-existence) of scaffolds. Often scaffolds are dismantled only to know that a similar one was required at that very same spot. This may result in huge operational losses for the organization.



Meeting OHS Challenges Through Software

Global corporations across the world are bringing together inherent technologies that are supporting multiple safety initiatives. Although a little late in the day, safety is being looked at closely for bringing in automation and thereby, making it efficient for the safety professional as well as the organization. Software acts as a natural area of support for such organizational safety teams. Here are 3 challenges that professionals face when considering software from ASK EHS perspective.
