How the Kokomo24/7® Incident Management Tool Can Help Keep Your Worksite Safe

At the core of the construction industry lies health and safety. Construction managers today face the challenging but important task of balancing productivity, compliance, and the safety of their workforce all at once.  

It is evident that safety should be the top priority given that the industry has one of the highest injury and fatality rates - with 10 construction workers per 100,000 dying on-site every year according to data from OSHA. 33.5 percent of those deaths were caused by falls, trips or slips.  

Preparing for the unpredictable can be hard, but the blueprint for equipping your company with the tools it needs already exists. One of the easiest ways to better oversee your worksites is with an incident management tool that can track and manage employee incidents, maintenance requests and repairs, and compliance data.   

Here are a few ways our incident management tool can help streamline your workflow, allowing for safer, compliant and more productive worksites.  

Report and Track Workplace Injuries and Concerning Behavior 

Accidents in the construction industry can happen suddenly and can have life-threatening consequences. Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that 1,008 construction workers were killed on the job in 2020 and there were more than 174,000 reported injuries. Having an incident management tool that can track and address when injuries happen results in better response that leads to worksites taking the necessary measures to prevent recurrence.  

In addition, Kokomo24/7®’s incident management tool seamlessly integrates with our anonymous reporting tool which can be used to report safety violations. According to data from OSHA, there were 958 workplace injuries in 2020 that were deemed “preventable” and employee negligence played a large role in those accidents. Reporting concerning behavior at job sites can lead to intervention before an accident happens.

Track Maintenance, Inspections Repairs 

A report from the Associated School of Construction showed that a shocking 72% of all construction projects are delayed. One of the biggest reasons for the delays are slow response and repair times to maintenance requests and not knowing that equipment is broken. Having an incident management system that can record all necessary details related to repair needs and makes sure they are dealt with promptly is vital to making sure your project finishes on time.  

Furthermore, Kokomo24/7®’s incident management system stores data and provides a clearer picture of your worksite, allowing you to identify equipment or materials that need repair or maintenance prior to inspection.

Track Your Compliance  

Compliance is one of the most important aspects of the construction industry and helps ensure that construction workers stay safe on the job. Some of the most common examples of compliance requirements that construction sites must meet are building things to code, wearing protective gear, and making sure that employees are properly vetted.  

Construction leaders are also tasked with staying on top of OSHA requirements such as Form 300, 300A, and 301 which can be automatically generated by our software. 

With so many areas to keep track of, it can sometimes be hard to keep track of all your compliance requirements, but our incident management software can simplify that job by streamlining the complex task of tracking every area of your workplace that must comply to OSHA standards. Because different states have different codes, Kokomo24/7®’s software is highly configurable to meet your needs.
