When you think of creating opportunities for improved safety on the job site, your first thought probably isn’t of a mobile app. But in fact, almost any facet of emerging technology can be utilized to improve your operations.

Just ask Brahma Group. The Utah-based project management and industrial construction company had built a strong reputation for workplace safety, recognized as one of the safest industrial contractors in the United States with a current experience modification rate (EMR) of 0.32.

“We’re always trying to find new ways to make things better whether it’s safety or productivity,” says CEO Sean Davis. “We’re always asking ourselves: ‘what could we do better? What did we do right?’”

Brahma Group uses several methods to ensure safety for its crew, but one of the most interesting is a mobile app developed by the company to help it better understand what its employees are dealing with on a daily basis.

“We actually created an app for our employees to use as a personal risk assessment tool for safety,” says Davis. “One of the purposes of the app is to see what types of hazards our employees are encountering on a daily level. We want to see which hazards continuously occur and if there’s a new way of approaching those safety risks.”

First implemented in February 2014, the mining safety mobile app is now widely used by Brahma Group employees and is helping the company gather data on the risks associated with tasks so that they can prioritize improvements and refined safety measures. Of course, the app is not the only effort that Brahma Group makes to ensure the safety of its employees.
