Use Case: Construction

The Construction industry can use the WorkplaceAware Report Management System to identify a
range of potential problems on their construction sites. Once identified, authorities may
communicate the problems to the appropriate personnel that need the information so they can
address and correct the issues before they become larger problems.
WorkplaceAware streamlines reporting of issues saving valuable time in correcting problems.
