New free construction site diary app supports seamless digital working


A free construction site diary app is making waves in the industry by offering digital working alternatives to outdated paper-based systems

The free construction site diary app, called Site Diary, is the product of award-winning software provider Work Wallet. The mobile app enables site managers and operatives to produce accurate site records whilst on the go in real-time, from any digital device. Additionally, senior managers off site can benefit from streamlined oversight, allowing support resources to be better targeted.

The free construction site diary app saves time and money

The free construction site diary app was officially launched in March 2022 and is already in extensive use.

Construction businesses including Bowmer + Kirkland, GMI Construction and GF Tomlinson, have claimed that Site Diary increases efficiency and productivity. This means that construction workers can avoid wasting time on time-consuming paperwork and dedicate that saved time to make a practical difference on site.

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.”

Enabling site workers to view the overall picture on just one screen

Work Wallet’s Site Diary app simplifies the process of recording all types of data or occurrences on site at any given time or date. The app also helps the user to see the wider picture by comparing all inputted data on the app in one complete overall picture.

For example, the construction site diary app shows:

  • progress updates
  • site conditions
  • weather records
  • contractors on site
  • deliveries received
  • incidents that occurred
  • decisions made and the reasons why

The construction site diary app ensures that all digital working is kept totally secure in online storage, but easily accessible when needed. In contrast, outdated physical record books are only accessible in site offices during working hours and so information is not immediately available or useful.

Built-in reporting and time-stamped records deliver invaluable data insights, which is especially useful when looking for evidence for insurance claims, legal proceedings, incident investigations, audits, regulatory reporting, and quality assurance.

‘Every construction site needs to keep track of what is going on’

Product director of Work Wallet, Adam Civval, led the development of the ground-breaking feature. He said:

“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 feature. 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.”

The app seamlessly integrates with Work Wallet’s wider suite of essential health and safety modules to provide automated entries; including Accident & Incident Reporting, Audits & Inspections, Permit to Work, and many more.
