PeerAssist Releases New Construction Safety Certification Software

PeerAssist client, California Drywall, wins 2011 Excellence in Construction Safety Award.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PeerAssist, a leading developer of tailored construction management software solutions, raises the bar for construction safety with their new application, Certification Assist. This unique construction safety certification software allows contractors to oversee and track all employees to determine who has, needs or is going to need additional safety training. Because PeerAssist tailors each application to their clients' specific needs, Certification Assist easily integrates into any accounting package, requiring very little training and eliminating the need for double entry of employees and their classifications.

"Working closely with California Drywall, we saw firsthand the difficultly of managing and maintaining employee certifications in a large organization like theirs where manpower fluctuates on a weekly basis," said PeerAssist CEO, Matthew Wagoner. "Not only did we close that problem gap, we helped make California Drywall a safer company to work for."

On April 6, California Drywall was awarded the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry's 2011 Excellence in Construction Safety Award for a company with more than 300,000 man-hours. Loss Control Director for California Drywall, Dan Allen, was also honored by KellerOnline and OH&S Magazine as the runner-up for the 2010 Safety Professional of the Year.

"It is an honor for us to be recognized for our safety efforts," said California Drywall President, Steve Eckstrom. "Ensuring the safety and health of all of our employees is one of our top priorities. The ultimate goal of our construction health and safety program is zero incidents. The Certification Assist program developed by PeerAssist has definitely helped us get closer to reaching that goal."
