Actionable Insight: A Must-Have for Safety Management Software

Safety management software provides a more powerful alternative to paper-based systems and spreadsheets. It helps to identify trends, determine the root causes of incidents and oversee planned actions.

To be quite honest, gathering safety data, is very easy.  The hard part is making sense of it of the captured data. Most organisations do a wonderful job with capturing safety data. Common methods include good old-fashioned paper or a combination of digital files and spreadsheets.

However, few companies are effectively able to convert the gathered data into centralised, actionable insight. Without actionable insight, all the data in the world is useless. It is what can be done with the data that is more important.

Common drawbacks

While spreadsheets may seem like the best course of action, issues like re-entry errors can actually lead to spotty information and other inefficiencies. Paper documents can easily be misplaced or improperly filed. All these are common drawbacks of traditional safety management systems and none of them provides actionable insights.

The role of safety management software

Safety management software provides a more efficient alternative to traditional methods of safety management. The software automatically manages data and allow for trends, root causes and plan actions to all be identified in real time.

One of the core components of any risk reduction program is safety data analysis. However, identification and corrective actions also play a significant role. It is quite unfortunate, though; that these efforts can quickly become useless when there is lack of proper communication channels.

Beakon’s safety management software provides proper identification of risks to enable the appropriate people within the organization take corrective actions. As these violations are amended, the possibility to help your safety team validate the accuracy of the Corrective Action plans and also capture all the visual evidence of safe conditions makes it a very useful tool.

Communication methods of safety management systems

One of the most effective ways of keeping your safety team accountable for safety is continuous communication. However, effective communication can be very time-consuming especially when it comes to managing it alongside everyday tasks and deadlines.

The more specific and tailored the communication is, the more impact it has and the more it sticks to your members. Beakon’s safety management software has a reporting feature that can easily automate all communication tasks as well as provide other additional benefits.
