Seeing the connection between people and risks

The three most significant risks in construction projects are project delays, safety concerns, and cost overruns. The responsibility for these problems can vary depending on the specific situation and the type of project, but typically it rests with the builders or construction company. 

The usual suspected causes of these problems include inadequate planning, poor communication among teams, inadequate resources, and weather-related issues.

Because there are plenty of potential causes for these risks and responsibilities, uncertainty and finger-pointing appear in many projects and escalate the complexity of project management.  

Why Trusstor looks at risks differently? 

Instead of hypothesizing why risks appear, we observe resource management patterns more carefully and find who and when is at greater safety and productivity risks. 

Visibility is essential in mitigating risks and their sources by providing insight into what is happening on the project. By having visibility into the project, teams can identify potential risks or problems before they become matters of concern. This visibility can also ensure that resources are being used efficiently and that projects stay on schedule.

Trusstor three layers of risks protection work as follows:

1. On a daily basis, Trusstor presents a consistent and broad observation of work resource allocation and distribution in the construction sites. Our C2 suite automatically identifies safety issues, such as workers who work alone in dangerous areas, or workers and guests who are not in their designated work areas. In addition, daily observation of planned tasks and essential work resources provides a high-resolution actual vs. planned observation

2. On a weekly basis, project status dashboards allow us to identify how subcontractors and site managers attended their weekly activities and provide visibility into the day-to-day progress of each activity or work area. This makes it easy for project managers to focus on productivity and safety issues.

3. Periodically, Trusstor generates two types of summaries. The first is a routine overview of resource management patterns, such as prolonged observations of critical bottlenecks in the project, subcontractors’ and site managers’ performance, and alignment with work plans. And the second is a tailored study of critical bottlenecks in the project. These summaries include recommendations for improvements to be tested in the coming days and weeks until the following periodic summary, which will analyze improvements or upstream and downstream issues.

Our motto is that increased visibility allows great builders to shine, and aspiring builders to improve. At the end of the day, the common denominator of both achievements and failures is people and context. And with Trusstor, you can understand how they work together, and affect each other.
