“With the technology [information] is readily available and easy to capture.”
When it comes to auditing, LR&M Constructions now have a streamlined way of concisely reporting on statistics, including at their regular audits. The company receive external quality audits every 6 months, as well as internal audits every 4 months. Transparency is increased by providing reports generated by the Rapid products to auditors and the LR&M Constructions board. This includes reports on contractor compliance, documentation, inductions and incidents. On top of these audits, they create monthly reports using Rapid Contractor Management to keep track of contractor information, which are then sent to their projects teams. LR&M Constructions enjoy having the ability to easily communicate the status of job sites and areas of improvement to management teams.
“It’s part of providing our safety report to the board on a monthly basis. We use the information out of the reporting tab to say how many contractors have been inducted and how many are due for recertification. It’s the same with the workers.”
Looking to the future, the goal of LR&M Constructions is to grow and increase their client database. They hope to gain exposure and work on increasingly complex projects, with Rapid Global supporting their endeavour the whole way.
“The goal for LR&M is to grow – our ultimate goal is to become a Tier 1 company. Part of Rapid Global is having systems in place so when the company does grow, we’ve already got the systems there so we’re ready for that expansion.”
