Leading construction field app's latest feature streamlines toolbox talks for superintendents and safety managers
San Diego, CA /PRNewswire/ -- Raken, the top-rated mobile field management solution for the construction industry, today announced the launch of Toolbox Talks, an innovative new feature that streamlines the workflow of essential jobsite safety meetings and promotes a culture of safety compliance.
Raken's new Toolbox Talks feature significantly reduces the time and labor involved in performing routine safety discussions on jobsites. Typically, superintendents and foremen have to find the relevant toolbox talk online, print it, perform the talk, collect signatures on paper from the crew, and then email or fax all documentation back to the office for compliance. This new feature allows them to schedule and access talks directly from their mobile devices, collect signatures on the spot and submit proof of completed talks directly to the project safety manager. Safety managers can use Toolbox Talks to upload company-approved talks, schedule talks across multiple projects and collect and download completed reports.
"Regular toolbox talks are an important way to keep safety top of mind on construction jobsites, but organizing and managing them can be frustrating and time-consuming," said Raken founder and CEO Kyle Slager. "The time it takes to prepare the talk, collect signatures and maintain records is a pain point we consistently hear from superintendents, foremen and safety managers. Our new Toolbox Talks feature lets them focus on their team's safety instead of paperwork."
Raken's new Toolbox Talks feature includes:
"Ease of use is really what it comes down to for me," said Ryan Knoph, health & safety manager at John W. Danforth. "Raken's digital Toolbox Talks eliminate the stress of having to chase down paperwork. And it keeps everything in one place. My days are already long, so saving time with Raken is a win in my book."
Raken serves nearly 4,000 clients in 92 countries and has been utilized on over 350,000 projects. The cloud-based SaaS solution boosts productivity and safety by streamlining workflow processes such as daily reporting, time tracking and safety management. Toolbox Talks is the latest in a series of powerful product enhancements, including a Spanish-language option and an offline mode, following a $10 million Series A funding round in 2018.
