Top Risk Factors in Construction and How to Prevent Them

Top Risk Factors in Construction and How to Prevent ThemAll construction projects carry some level of risk. Proper planning, regular reporting, and being able to make good decisions quickly can help avoid the risks and contribute to the successful completion of projects, higher profits, and the ability to grow and expand the company.

Keep abreast of the following points

Here are the common factors to watch out for on construction projects to not allow them to become a problem and derail the project:

Poor productivity. Often the reason for this lies in poor project management and poor resource allocation. A good project manager is certainly extremely important, but it is also important to give him the right tools to build and maintain an effective workflow. Accurate and timely data, as well as constant visibility and being aware of are the key to high productivity.

Delays and interruptions in supply. This is a reality in the construction industry and it is unlikely that it can be completely eliminated. However, a timely and quick response to such situations can help mitigate the negative effect. Thereby, managers can quickly take a number of measures to reduce equipment downtime and prevent overpayments.

Health and safety hazards. Construction is a dangerous industry in terms of injuries and general safety. In addition to the potential harm to workers, a serious accident can cause work to be stopped or delayed and lead to a failure of the whole project. Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain a strict safety policy and control everything related to this. It is also one more factor requiring a constant flow of accurate data.

John Bennett, Executive Director, Sunny Days In-Home Care, Inc.

“Snappii built the app with our requirements needed to reduce the handling of paper invoices and BOL for our customers. This is a real time saver all the way around. Our drivers are able to send the electronic document from where ever they are in the USA. Make the office reduce time with not having to manually go through stacks of paper when drivers return to the home terminal. This company has gone from many paper items to 0 paper needed for our purpose. We love it.”

Edwin Smutt, Elevation Transport

“The main idea for the application was to convert the existing paper forms we use on a daily basis. We needed to organize Timesheets, Pipe test reports, HVAC and Plumbing sheets, as well as track job on-site daily reports. We’re really happy with the progress. Now it literally takes a few minutes to fill out the report, sign and send it. We receive a convenient PDF output that’s stored in the app and also can be shared via email, cloud drives, and printed if needed.”

Steven Koski, Outside Labor Superintendent/Safety Officer, Harold Brothers Mechanical Contractors, Inc.

Inspect & Maintain Vehicles App: Fast Inspections for DOT Compliance

Inspect & Maintain Vehicles App: Fast Inspections for DOT ComplianceFrom time to time commercial vehicles are put through a DOT inspection to make sure they are complying with all of the rules. These inspections are carried out by a state police officer or a DOT inspector. However, drivers must be aware of these inspections, be prepared for them and carry out their own ones.

A snag and consequences

DOT mandates a program of pre- and post-trip inspections. When an issue is discovered, a vehicle inspection form should be submitted stating the nature of the problem. Also, it requires a form after repairs, confirming that the issue has been corrected. This can be a tedious and time-consuming process, and as a result, contribute to ignoring, violations and heavy fines.
