Mobile apps changing the face of construction worker safety

In 2016, one in five worker fatalities in America occurred in the construction sector, with falls, electrocution, being hit by an object or getting caught in collapsing trenches or falling structures the top four causes of worker deaths.

Now, thanks to mobile technology both workers and site managers can create a safer worksite with help from mobile apps designed for the construction industry.

Accidents in construction are preventable with proper attention given to safety standards, using the right equipment the right way and being aware of hazards in your surroundings. Popular safety apps for construction workers and work site foremen help keep safety top of mind and make it easy to follow OSHA’s construction site safety requirements.

Popular construction apps include:

FallSafety Pro: Designed for people who work in high places, the app detects a fall using a mobile phone’s acceleration detection functionality. If a fall is detected, the phone sounds an alarm and sends an alert to the worker’s emergency contacts, including GPS information for faster response times.

Decibel 10th: From jackhammers to piledrivers to explosives, work sites are full of deafening sources of noise. The Decibel 10th app helps a worker or safety manager detect the level of noise on site. If sound levels exceed 85dB, foremen can make sure workers are using ear protection.

National Trench Safety: Trench fatalities result when a worker is suffocated or crushed when the walls of a trench collapse. This trench safety app includes excavation safety checklists and guidelines for constructing and reinforcing trenches for improved safety.

Safety Meeting App: Work safety managers, contractors and others who manage work sites have a lot to keep track of to remain compliant with OSHA’s workplace safety regulations. The Safety Meeting App keeps track of OSHA-mandated safety meetings, employee attendance, injuries and accidents onsite, and more and can be used in any kind of construction site.

Construction apps are also available for worksite safety managers, who must balance priorities between keeping work on schedule and keeping workers safe.

If you’ve been injured in a work site accident, contact an experienced work injury lawyer to learn more about protecting your rights and getting the help you deserve.
