How Maugers got their teams excited about using SiteConnect

Maugers had the challenge that many businesses face. How to get the guys excited and engaged in a basic level of buy-in towards health & safety?

As the Health & Safety Officer, it was Tammy’s responsibility to follow up and make sure these processes were being completed. To do this effectively, Tammy had to physically go to the site, often over an hour apart.

“One of the biggest challenges I had pre-SiteConnect was getting buy-in from the guys to fill out paper pre-starts or any paperwork in general. It just didn’t happen; it was impossible.”

“SiteConnect has given me the chance to remove myself from the compliance part of Health & Safety, giving me the tools to communicate with our staff way more efficiently.”

“The guys now know Health & Safety doesn’t have to be a headache and that Tammy is not a demon wearing a hard hat.”
