Jakes Construction becomes more efficient in its safety program, saving the company ~$100K. 

Whenever you join a new company, you have an opportunity to see what’s possible with fresh eyes. Chris Colley was brand new to Jakes Construction (part of BC’s Klaassen Group of Companies) when he made a bold move to propose going digital with their Safety program. And he wanted the Safety software with all the bells and whistles — SiteDocs.

Inspections & Audits Made Easy

Jake’s Construction (part of BC’s Klaassen Group of Companies) has a wide range of businesses in multiple industries from construction, paving, aggregate mining all the way to agriculture. As the company continued to grow and outperform in all of their companies, managing safety procedures in multiple industries, the growing number of workers and worksite locations was becoming an increasing challenge for the small safety team.

The founding leadership managed the safety program very well on paper for years but it was time to choose a safety solution that could grow alongside their successful group of companies.

“The switch from paper to digital was easy and the crews had very little pushback and adapted easily.” said Chris Colley, Safety Director. Now SiteDocs holds all the Safety material needed for Jake’s including Safety Management Plans, Safety Data Sheets etc… categorized and stored for online or offline accesses through SiteDocs on any device.

When a Supervisor is asked where you can find critical documentation – it’s right there now. Right there! No one is sent scrambling to find and look through a stack of binders for inspections or audits or special client requests.

Increased Efficiencies with Equipment Maintenance

On any given day Jake’s Construction and Klaassen Group of Companies crews might have 275 pieces of equipment running. As you can imagine there are many complexities keeping this fleet operating.

Historically, sorting through the pile of paperwork would make prioritizing repairs a manual process. Now with SiteDocs, maintenance issues can be sorted and filtered by priority, along with photos and extra details from the field, quick and easy with a few clicks of the mouse.

We’re always pushing our crews to learn more and stay sharp. The work itself can be challenging at times, but SiteDocs makes it easier to manage all the hard work being done.

The Savings Speak For Itself

Recommending changes to the existing, and well run safety program, as the ‘new guy’ was a bold move. Fast forward to a year later, Chris estimates the time saved going back and forth from the various regional sites and offices, the gas and miles on the road between sites with paperwork, recovered time from administration, was over a hundred thousand dollars each year.

Since taking on SiteDocs, Jake’s Construction safety team feels confident to manage safety across all job sites as BC’s Klaassen Group of Companies continue to grow and have a positive impact on the surrounding region and people.

Within the first year of switching to SiteDocs we estimate we saved over $100,000 on the admin time, paperwork, personnel, and training processes. The crews had very little pushback and adapted easily.
