“In just one day, Safesite uploaded my monthly jobsite safety inspection sheets and my equipment inspection sheets. That helped me track all of that info much faster, and no more paper is a plus!”

—Tyler Jones, Director of Safety, Westmaas Electric

“Templates are downloadable, uploadable and buildable. There’s analysis and reporting for when inspections are completed and they’re also viewable in dashboard. Just a few clicks are needed to start an inspection report for a project; it’s simple and effective. I’d give it 3.5 stars for inspections. As a safety professional, I want the ability to design slightly more complicated inspection templates for more diverse KPI tracking and to report out as a third party to owners, project managers and subcontractors. It syncs offline to the dashboard. When back online, it offers weekly user/admin webinars with great customer service.”

—Marshall Pancoast, Walker Construction Inc.

“Safesite has helped us by growing safety engagement. Having the ability to customize inspection forms with comment boxes and pictures makes it easy for our superintendents to understand and follow with visual references.”

—Colin Boughner, Dan Vos Construction
