Saskatoon-based startup myComply could be set to revolutionize construction site safety across North America.
Timed with Construction Safety Week 2018, myComply has announced its flagship solution that helps to reduce risk by making it easy for general contractors to verify that all trade contractors on site at a construction project are properly trained and safety certifications are current.
“Tracking and managing safety certifications in the construction industry is a challenging exercise that requires considerable time and paperwork, not to mention the complexity of working with multiple sub-contractors across different job sites,” said Joe Hogan, Vice President, Association of General Contractors, New York State. “In addition, new work site safety regulations are now in place in New York City, with large penalties for non-compliance, fueling demand for more efficient, effective, and reliable ways to ensure all safety training requirements are met.”
The myComply solution uses mobile technology and a cloud-based service to centrally manage and verify safety certification and training requirements, while enabling project permit holders to easily access the necessary information for all workers on a job site. MyComply is integrated with Procore’s, cloud-based platform, which is used by construction professionals to manage risk and build quality projects. Designed specifically for the construction industry, myComply also works offline, ensuring it can be used in remote locations that may not have access to cellular service.
“Job site safety requires the right set of safety tools. At myComply, we’ve developed a solution that provides much needed transparency around the training and safety certifications for every worker on a construction project,” said Lee Evans, co-founder and CEO of myComply. “Plus, with our Procore integration, users not only have much greater oversight of their construction teams, they will also get access to critical information while continuing to use the Procore platform that they have grown accustomed to.”
