Zurich North America Insurance is offering a new construction app through Zurich Services Corporation designed to help its construction customers manage their risks and help improve safety, quality, and insights while on the job.
Subscriptions to the Zurich Construction Solutions app are now available industry wide.
“Our construction customers have told us about the struggles they face on their job sites related to quality and safety,” said Jon Tate, VP of construction, Zurich Services Corporation, Risk Engineering Zurich North America. “As we engaged customers, it became apparent many of them were looking for a way to more easily collect and trend data in real time to address their concerns. We heard them and are excited to be able to offer this digitally driven solution.”
Through the mobile app, workers are able to complete reports and assign observations related to dangerous conditions or sub-quality work on job sites in a digital manner. The information is then available to risk managers and supervisors in near real-time, allowing them to react to individual issues quickly, as well as see trends across the larger data set.
The app also can help track and confirm that safety, program and quality controls are being addressed.
Zurich Construction Solutions also provides the ability to link a specific form to a QR code so any employee, contractor, subcontractor, or vendor involved with a specific job site can complete a required form such as one for documenting an equipment inspection, even if they have not downloaded the app.
The app also can be used to send digital “push messages” to users, such as product recall alerts, risk alert notices, reminders about webinars, and information about emergency preparedness for storms and other important topics.
The construction solutions app was developed with Real Time Risk Solution, a developer and technology provider offering sustainable, economical and immediately implementable technology solutions that can be deployed on smartphones, tablet devices and PCs. The developer was chosen for its ability to provide flexibility to quickly adapt to the needs of Zurich’s customers.
