Benefits of using Safety Management Software Systems
More than ever, the responsibility of the Occupational, Health & Safety department is critical to an organisation.
Higher insurance premiums, increased fines for non-compliance, and even the risk of jail for business principals for fatal accidents, means that confidence in your safety software systems, policies and software tools is critical. Compliance with safety software management systems is a driver for OHS responsibility, and a safer environment also means fewer injuries, greater productivity and improved profits.
Centralise & share information organisation-wide
As all organisation OHS data is centralised in one safety software solution, information can be accessed by anyone, anywhere. Security allows you to restrict what type of information can be seen and which area's information can be accessed. Via the web-browser capability of the safety software employees can enter incidents from any physical location or view a particular company policy online.
