Five Steps to Receiving Better Data from the Construction Site

Posted by Brett Long on Mar 4, 2019 2:26:53 PM

Construction supervisors have a ton of work on their plate. Consider what a typical work week might look like for them:

Supervise employees: As the supervisor, you need to check on employees to make sure they're following the schedule. From time to time, supervisors also have to work on union-related issues.

Maintain safety standards: Construction work is dangerous. Supervisors need to make sure all staff members attend safety meetings and receive functional safety training. If a safety requirement is missed, employees may suffer, and the company’s reputation will take a hit.

Work with the customer: Even the most understanding customers are going to have complaints occasionally. For example, a customer points out that construction noise on one floor is upsetting other tenants. A construction supervisor is often the first person to hear these complaints.

Complete head office requirements: If the above wasn't enough, there are also forms and paperwork to be completed for the head office. Compared to safety and employee issues, many supervisors see these forms as less important. Yet, those forms contain critical data for head office to detect problems and hit corporate goals.
