Remote Construction Site Monitoring, Part 3: Communicating with Your Site

From our first two articles in this series, you’ve learned how to remotely keep track of what is going on at your site and ensure that everyone there has the appropriate documentation. Now, we’re going to cover how to use the same system to allow you to communicate with people, companies and trades on the site.

Keep workers safe, not swimming in unwanted texts.

An issue with many broadcast messaging services today is that they message everyone, whether or not they’re on site that day. This often leads to unsubscribes from workers not present, so they don’t receive critical messages even when they do come to the site. Flaws like this occur because the communication system is not linked to the access control system: It can’t tell who’s on site and who isn’t. Using a system like CrewSight allows you to only message the groups of people who need to receive the information, whether that be all workers on site or just specific contractors, companies or trades.

Imagine a high wind forecast develops throughout the day and you need to communicate immediately with crane operators. With a remote system, you can notify the crew from wherever you are, at the touch of a button.

Similarly, if you have a site-wide emergency and need to alert everyone present, you can send a message to all on site workers at that very moment, while avoiding annoying workers who are off for the day or working remotely. Once they all reach the muster point, supervisors on site can also use the same system to do immediate and contactless roll calls of everyone there (no clip boards or name calling). By using their mobile phones or rugged handheld devices, they can see almost instantaneously who isn’t at the muster and who may still be in danger.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is revolutionizing the construction industry thanks to extensive use of centrally-shared data and 3D modelling of modern developments. But, often, contractors still rely on printed plans, tape measures, and plumb lines to translate those designs to the field, which can lead to mistakes. The next evolution in BIM is technology, which
