KPost Roofing & Waterproofing was recently named 20th overall on the Top 100 Roofing Contractors list. The Dallas company also has the enviable title of “Official Roofer Of The Dallas Cowboys” and 2017 Contractor Of The Year. Founded in 2003, the company has grown to over 400 employees and a whopping $65M in annual revenue.

KPost founders Keith Post, Steve Little, and Jayne Williams worked for another local roofer and struck out on their own with a philosophy of creating exceptional customer experiences and a company culture based on respect & support. That philosophy continues to this day, and the results speak for themselves.

The Problem

KPost has dedicated health & safety staff that provide training & coaching, but they were struggling to get participation from field staff, manage paperwork, and know where they should be focusing their time & attention. This led to a higher risk of incidents.

SafetyHQ Solution

SafetyHQ worked with KPost to create customized electronic forms for job site hazard analysis, safety inspections, incident reports, and more. Coupled with our toolbox talks, training records management, and document storage features, KPost now has a single place to house all of its safety program information. All their safety stuff can be accessed anytime, anywhere, from any device.

Field staff complete a weekly toolbox talk based on a topic sent out by the safety staff via SafetyHQ. They also complete a daily job site hazard analysis that covers how to avoid the risks that they might experience that day. The staff also follow up with safety inspections to verify that safe work practices are being used.

All information submitted into SafetyHQ is fed into custom dashboards that show KPost management insights such as;

  • Who is & isn’t participating in the program
  • At what the rate are safety deficiencies occurring on their job sites
  • What types of deficiencies are occurring along with their severities

The Results

KPost had a few objectives when they chose to use SafetyHQ to better manage their safety program.

  • Reduce time spent on administration
  • Increase safety program participation & compliance with policies
  • Lower risk & workers’ compensation premiums

One year into their SafetyHQ deployment, KPost has achieved the first two objectives. They expect to achieve the third in the next two years as SafetyHQ provides the intelligence they need to further strengthen their culture of safety. For KPost, even a small reduction in their EMR will provide them with hundreds of thousands of dollars of savings each year.

“SafetyHQ helps our team complete their safety tasks easier and provides me as an owner real-time views of what’s going on. SafetyHQ is also helping us fulfill our goal of keeping our workers returning safe to their families each night.” – Steve Little, President of KPost
