Bowmer & Kirkland (B&K) has adopted a new digital workplace onboarding platform.
Site Gateway from Work Wallet is a digital self-service tool that enables businesses to provide safe site access by onboarding visitors and contractors before they arrive and thus shift face-to-face compliance processes online.
B&K director of health and safety Mark Blundy said: “Work Wallet is essential in our journey towards paperless health and safety reporting, recording, inspection, and management.
“The new Site Gateway feature helps us manage our processes around permits to work and authority to proceed, allowing us efficient control of high-risk activities on our construction sites.
“We can already see the potential to develop and apply this feature in digitalising more of our procedures in future, reducing administration and freeing up site managers’ time.”
Site Gateway complements Work Wallet’s modular software by sending a pre-arrival weblink to contractors and visitors, containing essential information for them to read and complete before they step on site, including inductions, site-specific rules, and submitting and validating permits to work.
Jonny Gray, CEO of Work Wallet, said: “The success of our new Site Gateway feature is that it’s simple to use and manage, streamlining site safety before anyone actually steps on site.
“It creates a connected safety culture, improving and monitoring visitors’ site-specific safety understanding and assuring businesses of compliance – while site managers feel they can focus on other essential areas, increasing productivity.”
