Safety First – Start Card with Survey 123
Track: Water Resources

WaterNSW has a strong focus on ensuring staff are provided the best tools for evaluating safety risks. A safety risk assessment is performed before work starts, or if conditions change, using a paper form. Survey123 was used to create a mobile app that calculated risks based on user input to replace the paper version. A trial of the app showed that 93% of participants preferred the app. The app has potential to reduce costs associated with safety risk assessments and administration by 55%.
