Founded in the 1930s as a small joinery business, Pochin’s Ltd has grown over 80 years to become synonymous with construction and property development in the North West and North Wales.


Health and safety in the construction industry is a serious issue. In 2017, there were 54 fatalities in the UK construction industry alone. This is part of the reason Pochin Construction believe driving a culture of safety is critical to their business.

Pochin Construction used to complete site inspections and audits using a paper tick sheet. The data from the inspections were then collated and input into a spreadsheet. This was an extremely time consuming and laborious process. And some sites were simply not completing all the required inspections. With the lack of inspections occurring, Pochins had loads of incomplete data, which caused a serious lack of visibility across their distributed sites. 

As industry leaders in health and safety, Pochins wanted to improve the culture and safety of all the staff and workers on their sites. The existing process really did not lend itself to this goal or drive improvements in its health and safety systems.

Inspecting safety in the field

“When the audits are complete, I can then look at analytics and review all the data. This is where we can begin to make business improvements.” Simon Taylor, Site Manager


Les Jones, SHE Manager at Pochin Construction, decided to look for a system to simplify this process and came across iAuditor. Due to the ease of use of iAuditor, senior managers scheduled audit/inspection completion rate went from 1% to 99%.

Thanks to Pochin Construction’s commitment to improving its safety culture, the business has seen a 168% lift in the recording of near misses over just 18 months. By setting up an easy to use template in the iAuditor system, employees are encouraged to take a personal responsibility for safety.

“Since introducing iAuditor it makes it a lot more efficient to react and deal with issues that occur on our sites.”

Les Jones, SHE Manager
