Case Study: FOSTERS СONSTRUCTION
Foster Construction have improved their Health and Safety performance by X in X time.
OUT OF DATE HSE INFORMATION
Until 2017 Foster’s HSE recording had been paper based and reports were up to a month out of date. This was a big problem because the company wished to do X, ….
INTEGRATED HSE REPORTING & DASHBOARDS
Foster’s use Acuite’s HSE mobile enabled tools to record and track their HSE progress daily, instead of monthly, which means they get actionable information in real time.
RESULT? IMPROVED HSE PERFORMANCE ACROSS THE BOARD!
Acuite’s cloud based HSE reporting tools save X time each month
EASY, TRANSPARENT INFORMATION SHARING
Fosters pride themselves on a process that is open and transparent which makes Acuite the perfect HSE recording and reporting tool for them.
Because we are capturing information daily, we can act on it straight away. In the past we could be weeks behind learning about where we are at, but this way we can fix things immediately.
General Manager Nigel Sun loves how easy Acuite is to use
REAL TIME INSIGHTS
Foster’s use Acuite’s simple mobile HSE reporting tools to record events as they occur.
“Our health & safety team are notified as soon as an incident has been logged and can act on this immediately. This has allowed us to put additional safety measures in place to ensure an incident of the same nature does not recur.”

COMPANY WIDE IMPROVEMENTS
“It is so useful, that everything aligns and you are not waiting for that piece of paper to be sent to you.”
Jael says improvement has been noted across all levels of the business, from the site, through to management.
ONE BUTTON BOARD REPORTS
Acuite’s one button reporting has been integral to improving Foster’s HSE performance across the company as they produce a monthly board report from Acuite data.
“We can drill right in to where we are least compliant and focus on that – incidents, leading versus lagging indicators, near misses. We can follow up on these items and relate the findings to similar projects.”
Foster’s biggest health and safety improvements have been in the use of scaffolding. Workplace falls in New Zealand are estimated to cost $24 million a year. Factor in the human cost and minimising falls means Fosters are saving both people and money.
RELIABLE AND RESPONSIVE
Acuite’s reliability and speed of response have also been hugely helpful.
Acuite does what we need right away – that’s a big thing. For us we like to work with systems that take on board our feedback and that is what Acuite has really done, always wanting to help us, and acting very flexibly.
