Free construction site diary app supports productivity and compliance

Work Wallet Stand: 3/K20

A free site record software solution is proving a hit with construction businesses adopting digital working, delivering clear and tangible benefits over clumsy paper-based systems. 


The Site Diary app – from award-winning software provider, Work Wallet – is a mobile-first tool that enables site managers and operatives to make rich multimedia records on the go in real time, from any digital device. Senior managers benefit from streamlined oversight, allowing support resource to be better targeted. 


Secure online storage maintains accurate records, easily accessible at any time, showing one version of the truth about happenings on site. In contrast, old-fashioned physical record books are only accessible in site offices during working hours. Information is not immediately useful, taking time to find, analyse and use. 


Already successfully piloted and used extensively by construction businesses including Bowmer + Kirkland, GMI Construction and GF Tomlinson, Site Diary increases efficiency and productivity, enabling users to spend more time on site actively making a practical difference.


John Cregan, Health Safety and Wellbeing Manager for Bowmer + Kirkland, commented: 


“Having Site Diary at your fingertips has immensely improved our records of day-to-day activities on site, allowing our managers to spend more time on site rather than doing paperwork in the site office. Important information can be recorded in real time, which means a much more accurate account.  


“It is a real game changer, from recording deliveries and wagon movements to progress photos, with such ease of use. The feedback from our site teams has been nothing but positive. It has been a great start to getting rid of so much paperwork, and to delivering a more sustainable workplace.” 


Site Diary makes it simple to record all types of occurrences on site at any given time or date, with data easily comparable in one complete overall picture, such as: progress updates; site conditions and weather records; contractors on site; deliveries received; incidents that occurred; and decisions made and the reasons why. 


Built-in reporting delivers invaluable data insights, especially when needing to evidence compliance for insurance claims, legal proceedings, incident investigations, audits, regulatory reporting, and quality assurance. Time-stamped records are easily findable, showing what was done, when, and by whom. 


Adam Civval, Product Director of Work Wallet, led development of the ground-breaking app: 


“Every construction site needs to keep track of what is going on – but site managers have told us repeatedly that paper-based site record keeping is often not good enough. After hearing this feedback, Work Wallet wanted to help. We set about finding a solution to this problem and developed a digital Site Diary tool, which is available now, completely free for all users at all times.” 


“Thank you to our clients that helped to pilot the new app. Their feedback helped us to fine-tune Site Diary before wider launch, and we are very proud of the result. The tool gives site managers and senior managers instant access to comprehensive information about their busy projects. It helps them maintain control, evidence compliance, deliver better quality outcomes, and keep people safe on site.” 


Officially launched in March 2022 following the pilot period, Site Diary is completely free of charge for construction businesses to use. It is a fully functional standalone module, but seamlessly integrates with Work Wallet’s wider suite of essential health and safety features, including Accident & Incident Reporting, Audits & Inspections, Permit to Work, and many more.
