Ohutu approached OWA to develop the Safety Assistant in early 2018. The idea was first conceived when Ohutu founder, Jason Strong, was unable to find an online solution to manage health and safety across his company’s multiple construction projects. Complying with regulations and creating a safe working environment is a legal requirement for all builders in the UK – but, historically, it’s always been a challenge keeping track of the paperwork. The solution quickly became clear – develop an online desktop application with the power to manage health and safety documentation across multiple projects, and a mobile app for site inspectors to use on the ground to keep individual projects updated.
What we did
Ohutu provided the OWA team with the concept, the brand and details of the project requirements. Working from the initial design concepts, we were able to code a unique and highly memorable suite of applications based on an on-screen navigation and user interface developed jointly with the Ohutu team. Business owners or project managers enter information about upcoming construction projects into the Ohutu online application, which generates a professional, customised construction phase plan for each project. The fully integrated Apple and Android mobile apps then work seamlessly with the online application, enabling site supervisors to manage health and safety duties on each individual project in real time while on site.
