As we know safety is one of the most important aspects on any Construction site. Working to out of date documents can result in 𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐣𝐮𝐫𝐲 and 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡. 💀
Even in the most disciplined environments people overlook the importance of Document Control, deadlines often become priority and standards start to slip. This often results in project teams working with incorrect and outdated versions or rejected designs which can result in serious Health and Safety issues.
Thankfully more emphasis is being put on Document Control and Digital Construction. Organisations are realising that it is a crucial role which can really enhance a project in so many ways, including project safety.
If you are reading this and thinking "𝗜 𝗱𝗼𝗻'𝘁 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁..." I suggest you start with a Document Control procedure that clearly identifies the role of Document Control within your organisation. Invest in your team and ensure they are credible in their field and are familiar with industry best practices.
