One More Time about the Importance of Fire Safety Measures at Enterprises

One More Time about the Importance of Fire Safety Measures at EnterprisesAccording to U.S. Fire Administration, 10-year trends for fires and fire-related injuries have decreased. However, the trends for fire-related deaths and dollar loss have increased. People still don’t take fire preventive measures seriously enough. Especially at enterprises where the risks are higher. Fires in businesses can result in substantial property damage and endanger hundreds of lives. Here are several steps that are essential while implementing the fire safety policy in the workplace.

Constant control of potential problem areas

There is a number of common hazards at any enterprise that is likely to be the source of a fire. It usually concerns machines and equipment, various electrical appliances and cords, flammable, HVAC systems, and more.

Ensuring proper and functioning fire-fighting equipment

Every business should have functioning fire-fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, sprinklers, etc. The service life must be clearly tracked. And of course, such equipment must be constantly maintained.

Emergency plan and employee preparation

Preparation is one of the most important elements of a fire safety policy. Each enterprise must have an emergency plan. Moreover, all employees must be instructed in emergency procedures. Regular training, fire drills, and reminders are essential. Also, it is important to make sure the emergency and evacuation plans accommodate employees with disabilities.

Estimation Techniques and Updated Job Estimator App for Fast Estimations in the Field

One of the most important parts of the project

Estimation is an extremely important part of dealing with any project. Poor estimation can blow a project budget and extend timelines, frustrating clients and the team. Therefore, due attention should be paid to this process.

There are the following estimation techniques:

– Top-Down Estimation. Businesses usually use this technique early in a project. The essence of top-down estimation is in determining the project budget first and then dividing it up between different stages or tasks. This is a quite suitable estimation technique for small projects that allows project managers to let a client know whether their budget will work for the project and specific tasks. However, it is not accurate and it is mostly based on the assumption. The top-down estimation technique also doesn’t account for possible changes in the project and the budget.

– Bottom-Up Estimation. In the bottom-up estimation technique, each part is estimated individually and then summed up to determine the total cost of the project. It is the most accurate estimation due to a lot more information about the project on hand and a full understanding of the requirements. This technique is suitable when the scope and components of a project are clear. Among its disadvantages are the time-consuming and requirement of a quite huge effort and resources to get such amount of information.

– Analogous Estimation. With this technique, the budget of the new project is based on the previous one. However, it works if the previous and new projects are similar. It is a great approach when all the manager need is a rough number. Analogous estimation is fast and doesn’t require a ton of information. However, it is worth remembering about the risks and a large share of inaccuracy.

– Three Point Estimation. This technique involves taking an average of three scenarios of estimation: best case, worst case, and most likely. Managers can adjust a special formula for such an estimation process. This technique takes more time and some specific knowledge but delivers a more accurate estimate.

A solution to optimize estimations in the field

Snappii understands that accurate estimations set the stage for a thriving business. Therefore, we have created the Job Estimator app to generate professional estimates in minutes without paperwork. The app provides the pre-made mobile estimation form, automatically makes all calculations, allows users to generate and send reports, and more. You can find more detailed information about the Job Estimator app here. Moreover, there is a short video demonstrating how it works. Recently we have updated the app with some new features.

1. All the jobs, tasks, items, and equipment are now automatically saved from all the forms for future usage

2. Users can choose between hourly rate and sq ft rate

3. The time spent and items costs on a project are summed up when generating an invoice

4. Increased number of lines for the equipment table

5. Currency selection

Regular Reporting as Key to Keeping Safety at Construction Sites

Regular Reporting as Key to Keeping Safety at Construction SitesConstruction is one of the most dangerous fields to work

According to the stats of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, out of every 5,000 private-industry worker fatalities, 20 percent are in construction. This field is also related to many non-fatal injuries that cost companies millions of dollars per year. This way, construction site safety is one of the most considerable things during a construction project.

Managers must mitigate safety hazards to construction workers through some actions. Among them are awareness of all possible hazards, regular training, and testing of safety knowledge, provision of personal protective equipment, accounting for weather conditions, keeping construction equipment in proper safe order, constant communication, and regular reporting.

Constant awareness is a way to ensure safety

Snappii can help with two points: communication and reporting. Snappii construction apps allow users to establish a steady flow of timely and accurate data. This is extremely important for constant control of the issue of safety on the construction site and other important points of the construction project.

The Construction Daily Log app is the #1 reporting tool. The app includes a one-page collapsed mobile form with the fields for contractor details, site information, work performed, subcontractor progress, issues and punch lists, reasons for delays, additional work or change requests, materials purchased and received, labor, and travel hours, and more. The form can be filled in with the voice-to-text feature. Users can attach pictures and make any drawing right on them to highlight progress or show problem areas. After filling out the form, it can be instantly generated into the PDF report. All workers can instantly submit the reports in various ways and safely store them in the app. Managers, in turn, can track who has not turned their report in. The Construction Daily Log app is a small but powerful solution to keep everything under control and avoid incidents and any safety issues on the construction sites.
