Pre-job Briefs

Execute work safely every time

How it works

Work Safely and Productively

Pre-job briefs are a foundational step in executing work as they are usually reviewed first before starting work. The pre-job brief is a fundamental human performance process that provides workers a checklist to review a job’s scope and identify critical steps, initial job safety assessments, job hazards, error-likely situations, and work protection features that should be used to make the job as safe and productive as possible. Performing pre-job briefs on mobile devices, whether online or offline, means that they can be adjusted dynamically as situations dictate and performance improvement opportunities are identified.

Analyze and Adjust

Having a paper-based or electronic standalone pre-job brief process is a good first step to improve safety and productivity. The DevonWay Pre-Job Briefs solution goes one step further by allowing users to trend and analyze the data collected so that the pre-job brief process can be adjusted to achieve a step change improvement.

Summary of Benefits

Always-current forms with automated version control that ensures the most recent version is always being used

Hard cost savings by eliminating the copying, distribution, and filing of paper-based forms

The DevonWay Pre-Job Briefs solution goes one step further by allowing users to trend and analyze the data collected so that the pre-job briefs process can be adjusted to achieve a step change improvement.

Key Features

Multi-Platform Support

Pre-job briefs can be performed either in a browser or on a mobile app. The app works both online and offline, so briefs can still be completed in field locations without internet access and will be automatically synced to the server when a network connection becomes available, resulting in a seamless user experience.

Step Certification

During the brief execution, users electronically certify that each list has been covered. Optionally, do not allow completion of the brief until all items have been electronically marked as complete improvement opportunities.

Rich Content and Data Analytics

Images, tables, signatures, and other elements can all be included as fields on a pre-job brief, ensuring users have all the flexibility they need to execute their work effectively. Data collected can then be analyzed using DevonWay’s ad hoc reporting and trending capabilities, providing valuable insight into improvement opportunities.

Templates with Revision Control

Partially filled out briefs can be set up as templates, making future use of those forms more streamlined and efficient. They are created and modified using an intuitive web-based UI that does not require IT skills, but still encourages proper checks and controls through a review and approval workflow prior to publication.

Integrated Workflows

Work can be performed in the field as a seamless part of a larger process that includes planning, review, validation, and other steps. This streamlines the entirety of a process, from initiation to closure. During the post-brief, users can quickly generate a new operating experience for wider organizational use and/or instantly initiate a revision to the brief itself.

Configurable Forms

Forms can be created to track every performance aspect of a job, such as job safety assessments, maintenance, hazards, and more. Forms can be completed using either the desktop browser UI or the DevonWay mobile app. They do not require IT skills to manage, giving program owners a user-driven tool to improve safety and productivity.
