ISN® Launches Empower™, an App Built for Workers, to Promote Safer and More Sustainable Worksites

ISN, the global leader in contractor and supplier information management services, announced the launch of Empower, a new mobile app designed specifically for workers. Empower makes it easy for workers to access, understand and proactively meet safety and compliance requirements from anywhere, giving them the confidence to know where they stand before entering Client jobsites.

Through the Empower app, workers can access job site requirements, view Client compliance status, complete training on the go and manage work-readiness information in one, central platform. Empower also provides the tools for contractor customers to provide access to work readiness information and drive safe and sustainable operations.

"With Empower, workers can satisfy safety and compliance requirements from the convenience of their mobile phones," said Joe Eastin, CEO of ISN. "We believe equipping individuals with work-readiness information and providing easy access to training is important to foster safer workplaces. The new Empower app with ISN's world-class contractor management platform, ISNetworld®, will help make this a reality by creating a more connected workforce than ever before."

When workers have easy access to technology, tools and information needed to meet compliance standards, contractor customers and Hiring Clients can benefit significantly from improved efficiencies and productivity. Empower reduces the need for contractor administrators to manually communicate, collect and track worker-level information by connecting with their workers through the app.

"Several of our customers and their workers were involved throughout the development of Empower," said Dag Yemenu, Executive Vice President of Products at ISN. "Leveraging these customer insights, innovative mobile technology and two decades of ISN's industry experience, we believe Empower will help transform how workers across industries engage with their contractor customers and Hiring Clients."

  • By combining worker-level insights from Empower with ISNetworld, Hiring Clients can efficiently communicate jobsite requirements to the frontline workforce, promote safety culture alignment across job sites and create a more connected workforce. This also enables Hiring Clients to minimize last-minute project delays and downtime due to gaps in workforce requirements since frontline workers can review and complete requirements proactively before they start a new job.
