Raken makes it easy to upload your construction safety toolbox topics (or choose from our library), bulk schedule from the office, then deliver them and track attendance in the app.

Toolbox Topics Library

Choose from 100 toolbox talk topics

Toolbox Talks comes with a starter pack of 100 pre-loaded talks, perfect for getting started or filling in any gaps in your schedule. We’ve got talks on a range of safety topics: everything from chainsaw safety to fall prevention.

Upload Talk Topics

Customize your construction safety topics

With Raken, you can always upload your company’s own safety topics and access them anytime, anywhere. Our cloud-based storage system is the perfect solution for anyone looking to schedule customized, company-branded and approved toolbox talks for all their construction projects.

Digital Signature Capture

Just pass the device around

Raken makes it easy to capture signatures: Pass around the phone or tablet and all the signatures are collected digitally and uploaded right into the report.

If you don’t feel like ditching the old sign-in sheet just yet, no worries. You can easily take a photo of the sheet and Raken will automatically include it in your construction safety report for that day.

Schedule all your toolbox talks at once

Not sure which superintendents are giving which toolbox talks? With Raken, you can bulk schedule a safety topic of the day for entire projects or at the company level before the project even begins. The superintendent will get the toolbox talk delivered right to their app.

Tell the whole story

In addition to safety topics for meeting, stay on top of construction safety with surveys and checklists that give context to what happened throughout the day. You can attach photos and add notes to improve quality control, too.

Notes and Surveys

Capture incidents with all the details

This is your place to capture anything you think the office might want to know for that day that doesn’t quite fit anywhere else. Don’t have access to a particular section of the site? See a potential worker safety hazard down the road? Just make a note of it here and keep the lines of communication open.

Safety Observations

Make a safer jobsite

So you noticed that the rebar wasn’t capped or there wasn’t enough signage near an open trench… snap a photo and add a quick explanation to make sure that everyone is on the same page.

Quality Control

Stay up to standard

Take photos, videos, and add attachments showing the state of the build. If you noticed rust on the metal or rotted wood, make a note of it here and fix the problem before it’s too late. Prevention is the name of the game in construction safety.

Safety by the numbers

The Raken Insights Dashboard gathers construction site safety data data from each of your projects and makes it digestible. Data collected from the field is sorted and organized so you can see the big picture at a glance or drill down for more details.

Toolbox Talks Compliance

Safety records at a glance

See what your overall toolbox talk compliance is, how many talks are missing, and how many have been completed. You can even filter the data by date range or project.

Safety Incidents

Know when it’s reported

Any safety incident reported in the checklist automatically shows up in your Insights tab, so you can see which projects are safe and which need a little more attention. It’s a fast, easy way to start making your jobsites safer.

Watch Raken's safety topics in action

Toolbox Talks definitely keeps us on track because it's very structured. You can load in what you want talked about and all the crews talk about the same thing that week. Plus, its all documented so we have proof that we did cover that topic.
