If you’re in the construction industry, you likely know that safety and compliance management software can make or break your company. From tracking employee certifications to maintaining accurate and up-to-date job site information, the right software makes compliance easy, but the wrong software leads to
- Increased risk
- Increased workplace incident exposure
- Financial loss (costs associated w/ workers comp, insurance premium increases, litigation, days away from work, etc.)
That’s why we were so excited to develop and launch a new feature added to AnchoRock® Safety Management System: QR codes that allow mobile devices to directly access and manage training and certification data! Read on to learn more about this great new feature.
Why Are We So Excited About This Feature?
With QR codes, workers can access certification and training data from any device, which means they don’t have to go back to the office to get the information they need. This is especially important for safety-critical tasks like toolbox talks. By having this data readily available, we can ensure that workers are properly trained and certified before they start work.
Having quick access to a cloud-based library of certifications for each and every crew member on your jobsite not only saves you and others time, it’s also the difference between someone getting hurt and someone not getting hurt.
Say for example, one of your Field Leads needs to verify someone before they operate an aerial lift. By the time that lead makes a call to the office, the office goes through their records and verifies, and finally calls back, it’s been a couple of hours . . . and in that time, that person was already on the lift, even though their certificate expired 3 months ago.
Now thanks to QR codes with AnchoRock, your field leads can instantly verify and access certifications and training data for each and every employee using your phone or tablet, directly from the jobsite.
AnchoRock’s new QR code feature is a game changer for construction safety. By allowing workers to access and manage certification and training data from any device on any construction job site, AnchoRock is helping to prevent the cost of full-time employees, reduce incidents, and save hours every week.
With this new feature, you can easily access a library of certificates from any device on any job site. You can also verify all certificates for all users in the cloud-based database. This allows you to ensure that everyone on your team is up to date on their training and certification before putting them to work . . . and without having to wait for a callback from the office.
Plus, you can use this data to create toolbox talks that will help improve safety on your construction site.
How It Works
The new feature allows for public QR codes to be scanned with any camera on any device, which then takes the user to a page where they can access certification and training data. This data can be used for toolbox talks, site safety audits, and more.
With this new feature, there is no need for paper records or manual entry of data. This makes it easier and faster to get the information you need, when you need it.
Private QR codes need to be scanned within the app, adding a layer of security.
This way, only those with the AnchoRock app can access and manage certification and training data, allowing for more accurate and up-to-date records of who is certified to do what on a job site. Plus, with the ability to access these records from any device, toolbox talks can be more easily managed and monitored.
When someone scans a QR code with their smartphone, they can access their certification and training data. This is a unique feature that allows for individualized management of safety data on construction job sites.
Project Usage & Benefits
One of the benefits of using QR codes is that image files can be printed off and put on badges or hard hats. This allows for workers to have access to certification and training data from any device on any construction job site. It helps managers keep track of who is certified for what tasks, providing a convenient and efficient way to manage construction safety data.
AnchorRock’s new QR code feature helps construction managers instantly send PDF reports of user data to anyone. This makes it easy to keep track of who has been trained on what, when, and where. Not to mention the data is stored securely in the cloud, so it can be accessed from anywhere.
Users can also instantly send a unique link of user data to anyone directly from anyone’s profile.
In addition, AnchoRock seamlessly integrates with all other major construction softwares and automation tools, helping you prevent double-entry, further automate processes, and saving time along the way.
Safer Jobsites for All
Construction job sites are notoriously dangerous places. There are a lot of moving parts, and it’s easy for something to go wrong. That’s why AnchoRock has developed a new feature that allows for QR codes to be used to access and manage certification and training data from any device on any construction job site.
AnchoRock’s certificate and training management feature allows you and your team to seamlessly track and manage training data. This is a full replacement for unwieldy Excel files, meaning a much safer jobsite for you and your crews!
