Excavation Checklist Mobile App

The Excavation Checklist mobile app provides a useful safety checklist that helps prepare teams for trenching and excavation projects. Project managers, excavation site managers, and professional engineers can use the app to ensure that all proper steps are taken to keep employees safe and prepare the site for work before the project begins.

Easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, the app covers important excavation site preparedness steps, including general inspections of the job site, checking for placement of utilities, means of access and egress, safety systems and more. Once completed, the results are saved electronically for your records.

If you like this app, we recommend check out this demolition app as well!
