during a project, shielding your construction company from legal
liability can be made much easier.
These cloud-based software solutions allow data to be managed
more quickly than traditional methods. From workplace safety issues
to weather delays to change orders, documenting and curating the
flood of data generated on a jobsite on a daily basis is easier than ever.
Storing information in a centralized database on the cloud that
is accessible through smartphones or other devices, construction
management tools give project managers the means to tabulate
infractions and keep track of recurring safety issues. Superintendents and foremen can document close calls, violations and whether
safety briefings occur easily using the speech-to-text capabilities of
construction management apps. Reports and observations can be
generated while walking a jobsite.

Weather Delays
One common source of litigation claims is increased costs because
of weather-related delays. By using a construction management app
that automatically captures and records weather conditions, companies can access weather histories with the push of a button. Legal
teams can quickly run through the records and address any claims in
a swift and accurate manner.

Prevention
By recording and documenting worksite conditions through daily
notes and photos directly uploaded to a project file, a company
can create evidentiary proof that it followed all applicable safety
regulations. For example, photos and other supporting evidence can
prove that hazardous materials were handled and stored safely on the
jobsite, refuting any claims to the contrary.
Construction superintendents can also use the construction
management apps to upload photos documenting safety issues and
violations on the jobsite as well as the steps taken to remediate them.
Documenting activities related to Job Hazard Analysis or Job Safety
Analysis can provide an additional buffer against litigation.

Notification
Miscommunication among stakeholders, project managers, contractors and subcontractors can lead to confusion and liability. Cloudbased construction monitoring software provides a better means of
sharing and communicating about blueprints, contracts and other
legal documents.
Using the software, a superintendent can quickly communicate
the need for changes or corrections to a stakeholder, removing the
potential of a legal claim that the project was not completed as promised. Apps with robust automated notification capabilities can ensure
immediate action on critical issues. Real-time information about any

incidents, risks or pending weather conditions can automatically be communicated
to project stakeholders through texting and
emailing them updates and photographs.
Proactive communication prevents misunderstandings. By learning of weather delays,
safety issues, and general delays as they
occur, stakeholders have a clear understanding of progress.
Cloud-based software solutions allow
companies to manage the voluminous data
generated each day on the jobsite thoroughly
and quickly. By properly organizing and documenting the data, companies can protect
themselves from legal liability during and
after the life cycle of a project.
