Going digital and centralizing their EHS operations on a single platform was the only way for the entire company to work more closely to analyze, improve, and continue to be a leader in the industry.
By partnering with Mapistry, U.S. Concrete has streamlined its environmental and safety compliance process from start to finish, including inspections, corrective actions, site mapping, production throughput logs, permit plan management, and reporting. Plus, they’ve gained comprehensive analytics to help them identify risks and drive informed decision-making and actions in their compliance programs.
Ultimately, they estimate that prior to Mapistry, the team was spending 40-50 hours per month managing inspections and compliance tasks. With Mapistry and the time saved, they have been able to reduce this by 60%, resulting in roughly $48,000 a year in savings in staff time alone.
They also estimate that they have saved thousands on consultant costs since moving all their EHS operations to the Mapistry platform.
U.S. Concrete leadership can now use Mapistry’s analytics dashboards to get a snapshot view into compliance performance across all 200+ of its facilities, instantaneously. Having all the data available in one location makes it much easier to measure progress, benchmark performance, identify and resolve problems quickly.
From the site manager to the regional manager to corporate-level management, empowering teams with centralized access to the latest compliance data, documentation, tasks, deadlines, and action items has fostered better collaboration and more targeted conversations among the team.
U.S. Concrete implemented workflows to manage all their environmental requirements in one place – stormwater, air (track out, visual emissions, and baghouse inspections), SPCC, and hazmat were all centralized.
From the ease of any smartphone, tablet, or computer, staff can digitally log inspections, view or manage tasks and assign corrective actions with a few simple clicks on their device, rather than filling out paperwork or chasing down status updates by email. Reminders and configurable alerts also help keep the team on track with compliance requirements so there are no surprises.
Key players stay aware of what’s in progress, enabling them to recognize a job well done and keep challenging the site on improvements.
In the first thirty days after launching Mapistry across their organization, U.S. Concrete set up 130 tasks, and 100% of them were completed on time.
Managing compliance is complex. The number of forms, permits, and documentation required is often overwhelming to organize and quickly track. With Mapistry’s software backed by the power of its Customer Experience Team, the process is no longer intimidating.
The Mapistry team configured U.S. Concrete’s site-level dashboards based on each facility’s unique set of regulatory requirements, inspection frequencies, and standards for stormwater, air, SPCC, and hazmat. Now, site managers can quickly monitor, manage, and track the performance of their facilities against specific permit requirements and regulations with ease.
For example, U.S. Concrete established a five-year updating plan for their SPCC with tasks and reminders they can track through the system. It’s now much simpler to uncover items like maps that require updates or notice when permits need renewal before a regulator makes their rounds.
By identifying gaps with their customer experience manager, U.S. Concrete proactively updated its processes. This not only prevented courses of action from being filed, but it also established a better working relationship with regulators on additional updates that need to be addressed.
