Construction Toolbox Talks
Access a library of 100 toolbox talks, safety checklists, and attendance sheets in one place. Download a complimentary COVID-19 toolbox talk (provided by NECA) here.
Find all your toolbox talks in one place
Raken makes it easy to upload your safety topics (or choose from our library), bulk schedule from the office, then deliver them and track attendance in the app.
Digital Signature Capture
Just pass the device around
Raken makes it easy to capture signatures at work: 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 workplace sign-in sheet just yet, no worries. You can easily take a photo of the sheet and Raken will automatically include it in your report for that day.
Schedule all your toolbox talks at once
Not sure which superintendents are giving which talks? With Raken, you can bulk schedule topics for entire projects or at the company level before the project even begins. The field superintendent will get the talk delivered right to their app.
Tell the whole story
Stay on top of jobsite 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 that doesn’t quite fit anywhere else in your daily report. Don’t have access to a particular section of the site? See a potential workplace safety hazard down the road? Just make a note of it here and keep the lines of communication open.
Safety by the numbers
The Raken Insights Dashboard gathers 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.
