Virtual Badge lets any worker participate in safety management while on-site. Managers can upload their safety forms and any badge-holder can submit them while in the field. Safety forms are time, date stamped, geocoded, tied to the submitter’s ID, and available to managers in real-time. Virtual Badge was designed to let everyone participate in safety management and helps keep managers “in the know” for any job-site they’re assigned to.
We at Virtual Badge know that reducing the Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) is one of the most important safety metrics on a construction site. Sometimes TRIR can be referred to as the OSHA incident rate or the Total Case Incident Rate. TRIR calculations measure the previous year's worth of OSHA recordable incidents, and the average for all types of construction is 3.1. That means 3.1 recordable injuries, accidents, or incidents each year.
In the construction field, each injury can cost a company on average up to $13,653 in fines for the OSHA violation, up to $42,000 of costs per individual case, and a cascading effect due to schedule slippage. All in all, each incident can cost more than $100,000 in real costs and potentially millions in insurance premiums.
With Virtual Badge powering your job-site's safety and risk program, you'll be in full control, with all the tools necessary to reduce your TRIR to zero. That's why our clients love using Virtual Badge.
