- It helps encourage a proactive safety culture
Mobile devices, combined with a dynamic HSE app, encourage workers to report hazards, even when they are busy at work. All they have to do is bring out their mobile device, put in the details of the hazard, take photos (if possible), and click a button to complete the report. They can even work offline, and data will automatically sync once connected. Information then is quickly relayed to management, enabling them to create corrective actions on the spot.
By enabling everyone in the workplace to quickly identify and act on critical hazards without sacrificing much of their time and effort, they are empowered to take part in building a safety culture that focuses on implementing proactive measures—not one that waits until a safety incident or accident occurs.
- It saves precious time and effort
With an HSE app (also known as EHS software), there’s no need for people to go through the struggle of collating photos and manual data entry when finalizing a professional safety report. They only need their mobile device, and the HSE app ensures that inspection data reaches the right decision-makers.
For Mike Gimpel, an environmental safety and health specialist at the engineering company AECOM, an HSE app like iAuditor helped him and his team achieve operational efficiency. Mike says, “Previously, supervisors would visit the field, check out the job site, then get stuck behind the computer at the end of the day trying to put together their audits and report them into a confusing database. We’ve provided more than 90 supervisors with the iAuditor system, which has decreased time spent at their desks while increasing the number of audits we’re able to complete.”
Additionally, management teams can save time by automating routine tasks, such as generation of CEO-ready reports, scheduling of regular inspections, and sharing of findings to key people.
- It improves compliance confidence
Occupational health and safety management standards (such as ISO 45001) and legislations (such as RIDDOR) help provide a structure to the maintenance of safe and healthy workplaces. Companies who aim to be certified for occupational safety standards can utilize an HSE app to help demonstrate their organization’s compliance. The HSE App can help monitor incidents, audits, risk assessments, environmental risk management, and performance across multiple workplaces.
- It makes it easier to standardize HSE management
The process of updating and printing HSE paper checklists and putting them into multiple hands for review and distribution takes a lot of time. Staff at different locations may also be using outdated paper checklists, which make standardization across your company highly challenging. With a digital solution like an HSE app, companies can easily build and update digital checklists and easily share them to everyone in the organisation—all within a few taps.
- It provides a bird’s eye view of the company’s HSE performance
An HSE app provides senior management teams a quick pulse of what’s happening in their workplaces and their people. Through a powerful business intelligence dashboard, they can easily view comprehensive performance reports, track the most critical safety data, uncover areas for improvement, and access historical data at any time.
