Level 10 Construction
Working on a 54-story high rise building in the middle of downtown San Francisco comes with its unique challenges. One million people commute into the city on a daily basis. Level 10 Construction needed to ensure the building could resist earthquakes of an 8.0+ magnitude and be occupiable the very next day. SafetyCulture iAuditor was number one tool of choice to ensure not only the safety of workers, but the one million commuters surrounding the site each day. They performed 2.5 million man hours with no loss-time injury.
Coles Australia uses iAuditor to manage their safety inspections over 760+ stores. Delivering the highest standard of quality and safety across 760 stores and 100,000 staff, is as worthy as challenges come. This case study explores how iAuditor simplified their audit process and empowered their staff to make safety and quality a priority.
