Do I need to download the app?

In this step-by-step guide, we will explain the purpose of each app and help you decide if downloading the Worker app is beneficial for you.

Step 1: Understanding the BuildPass Admin App

The BuildPass Admin app is designed for project administrators who need to manage various aspects of a construction project. Here's what you can do with the Admin app:

  • Access all project-related checklists.
  • Manage site diaries and running toolboxes.
  • Approve inductions, tickets, and other important documents.

Step 2: The Worker App - What is it for?

The Worker app is primarily for workers who need a more streamlined and personalized experience with BuildPass. Here are some key features of the Worker app:

  • Downloadable from the App Store.
  • Allows workers to manage their inductions.
  • Provides the ability to scan QR codes upon arrival to the site, choosing between Worker or Visitor status.

Step 3: Accessing BuildPass without the Worker App

Workers can still access BuildPass without downloading the Worker app. They have the option to continue in the browser if they prefer not to install the app. They can use the browser on their phone for inducting and other functions.

Step 4: Advantages of Using the Worker App Despite not being a requirement, there are some advantages to using the Worker app:

  • Profile Management: Workers can manage their profile, including personal information and work details, for easy access and updates.
  • Ticket Management: The app allows workers to handle their tickets efficiently. For example, if a certification like a white card expires, they can update it in the app promptly.
  • Project Navigation: If workers are involved in multiple projects within the same build, the app allows seamless navigation between them.
  • Checklist Completion: Workers can complete project checklists directly within the Worker app, enhancing functionality and productivity.

Step 5: Making the Decision

If workers only need to get to the site, induct, share tickets, and sign onto SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements), the Worker app may not be essential. They can rely on scanning QR codes and accessing the browser version. However, for a more comprehensive and convenient experience, it is recommended to download the Worker app.

While the Worker app is not mandatory, it provides workers with several advantages, including profile management, ticket handling, project navigation, and checklist completion. For the best possible experience with BuildPass, downloading the Worker app is recommended. Make an informed decision based on your needs and preferences. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
