Quick response (QR) code communication

Construction sites need to consider the safety of neighbours and the local community.

Whilst most sites do their best to ensure that the surrounding perimeter of the site remains clear and tidy and that the site does not pose any risk to passers by or neighbours; there should be the opportunity for the public to feedback to the site presenting any concerns that they may have. This will help to promote a caring, considerate site and also allow you to communicate with the public and learn from any safety risks that may have been missed or overlooked.

The use of a mobile phone and QR code can allow feedback regarding safety concerns and help to report accidents quickly and easily.

Examples of using mobile phones and QR code communication include:

  • A QR code was included on posters located outside of the site and in the welfare accommodation, so that the public and operatives could notify the company, via its website, of any safety concerns;
  • A smart phone app was specifically developed as an ‘incident and accident’ reporting tool. The app was downloadable using the displayed QR code on the office notice board and could include photographic evidence for instant submission to depot and safety advisors.
