For someone running a small to medium sized business the letters SMS, standing for safety management system can be a forbidding acronym. The SMS for a large and complex organisation can be a document of many thousands of words over hundreds of pages, prescribing a bewildering array of meetings and procedures.

If you are going to bother adding a Safety Software application to your construction business, you had better make sure it’s going to be about something, the same way that buying your loved one (or friend) a current-model iPad had better be about something.

“Oh, uh, neat. I can watch Netflix in bed easier?”

“Or check your stocks! There’s a stock app—”

“—I don’t own any stock.”

SMS stands for “Safety Management Systems” and construction safety compliance is best managed with Construction Safety Software that allows you to -- you guessed it -- manage your construction safety management system.  If you're running a construction business, you likely need Safety Software. Why? You know that successful construction businesses identify and manage all safety risks that have the possibility to impact on your business objectives. Oh, and there is a fair amount of efficiency that comes from accessing integrated data for multiple purposes. 

But here’s the straight fact: whether your construction company is eight people or eighty, passing notes through an Excel sheet to track those interactions isn’t feasible, because you’re a consistent business with a predictable growth curve for the foreseeable future. That Excel sheet, or whatever system you use to catalogue and analyse your safety processes, is an ugly relic that needs to be left behind.

Sound familiar? Then it’s time for an update. You can taste it in the drinking water. You’re a smart, modern construction business owner, safety professional or site manager and you need an SMS . If you're still on the fence about whether this technology is for you, read on to find out which questions to ask yourself when evaluating your need for construction safety software.
