Imagine this; you are working on a small site in a public area with little to no site office.
You’re the supervisor for the day; once at the location, you realise that you’ve misplaced the job plan and paperwork, leaving it at home.
A real-life example of this occurred on a construction site* in Auckland, New Zealand, in July last year.
“The job plan and paperwork had been left at home by the supervisor, and the workers were not briefed about the known buried cable.”
“The worker was lucky to be alive after ploughing a steel rod through a live electrical cable underground.”
Suppose there was a way that site-specific information could quickly and easily be shared with all stakeholders involved. In that case, this could have prevented a potentially life-threatening situation from unfolding in the first place.
