Indiana-based contractor XL Industrial Services, Inc., is seeing both cultural and business benefits from implementing HCSS Safety in the field. The fact that foremen, the most influential people to the success of safety in the field, have access to information and processes at their fingertips has resulted in increased attention to safety for all crew members.
The company’s improved relationship with its customers is also an added benefit. The customers love the fact that their crews have the ability to reference safety meeting content and inspections electronically and that XL has processes to ensure that managers follow up with any items needing attention.
“We’ve been using it in business development opportunities, and it has certainly made a difference,” said Ryan Pollock, Safety Manager for XL. “To be able to use the HCSS App in the field and show customers what we’re doing and how we pull information is great. Since July, we have had 1579 equipment and 139 job site inspections, and our guys in the field are doing those. It’s more or less a way to show current and potential new customers what our culture is like.”
Strong, crew-oriented safety cultures and processes can be a huge business asset. Does your top management know that HCSS has safety software, and that used in conjunction with HeavyJob field entry software, it is one of the most painless options to improve your safety culture and improve your options for seeking more work?
