Safety Inductions: A mobile app for an easier contractor safety process

Introduction to Safety Inductions App

Safety induction is a mobile application aiming to reduce cost related to the presence of sub-contractors or external service providers on site. When time management is at utmost importance (outages, urgencies), external service providers are called upon on site to perform tasks, inspections, or maintenance work, while having one EHS officer on site, the execution of the safety inductions can take several hours of the officer’s time (who is required to perform other tasks in that situation) Statistically, an induction takes on average 15 minutes, when multiplied by the number of visitors, it can elevate to several hours (even when done by groups) This application is developed as described next to tackle this situation.
