Workplace safety is the talk of the town.

And it should be. Inducting new staff and granting them access to your worksite always presents a safety risk, especially when every company has its own needs and its own induction workflow.

Nevertheless, despite your choice of induction, the truth is that you should give all workers and visitors specific training and collect all required documentation before work starts or before they enter your worksite.

With the Sine Pro mobile app, all inductions can be done remotely and before a worker arrives on site, creating a completely contactless induction process during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is a contactless induction?

Contactless inductions present a quick and easy way of inducting contractors to your work site without having to print countless sheets of paper, waste time or require contractors to touch multiple surfaces.

The difference between traditional inductions and contactless ones is that contactless inductions are done through the Sine Pro mobile app instead of printed sheets of paper. You can create a workflow to speed the induction process and prepare your contractors even before they set foot on your worksite.

We’ve talked about how contactless inductions can help you; now let’s see how they can help your contractors.

How can digital inductions help your contractors?

A contactless induction system enables your contractors to both get access to the required workflows and complete them straight from their mobile devices. Which means that contractors no longer need to actually be on-site to complete required workflows. Freeing up time of your staff that would normally need to induct contractors and allowing them to collect all required documents prior to a contractor starting work.

The best thing is that you can do all of this using Sine. Let us show you how you can do it!

How can Sine help you with your contractors’ inductions?

One of the good things about contactless inductions, especially if you’re using a cloud-based app, is that you can engage your contractors differently than you would with a paper-based induction system, enhancing your inductions.

Take a look at these ways Sine can enhance your contactless inductions.

Completing workflows from the Sine Pro mobile app

Using Sine workflows, you can create an induction process using our simple drag-and-drop interface, adding as many blocks as you need.

Sine’s workflows help you make sure that your contractors can only access your site if they have satisfactorily completed the process, reducing the chances of your contractors coming to work unprepared.

You can also add pre-screening questions to your induction workflow to increase your worksite security and protect against COVID-19 or other threats.

Combining Sine's mobile app with Sine Workflows, your contractors will complete all of your site's workflows during check-in. If you have multiple workflows, they will be presented one after the other. No emails, no notifications and no need for contractors to leave the app, all workflows will be required to be completed during check-in.

Using geofencing to ease check-in

Sine’s geofencing feature gives your contractors the ability to quickly check in to your workplace. When you activate the geofence around your worksite, each time a worker or contractor crosses the perimeter, they will receive a notification to check-in and complete the process right from the app.

Creating QR codes to invite contractors

Each time you invite a worker or a contractor to your worksite, the site's QR code can be sent out. Contractors can scan that QR code and complete their contactless check-in. Or, for fast-track access, you can scan into sites using the app wherever you display your site's QR code posters.

Once you start doing this daily, you will get an accurate overview of your contractors, their inductions, their entry time, and whether or not they have completed the required workflows.

Creating a contactless check-in, which includes all of your site's workflows is a key process that companies need to implement to keep their workplaces and people safe and to help flatten the curve.

Users should only use Sine for COVID-19 purposes in accordance with the provisions of their local laws. Sine is not responsible for the capture of information. See Sine’s Terms of Use.
