Workplace safety is critical not only to your employee’s wellbeing but also to your company financially. Fines, lawsuits and legal fees are all examples of monetary losses any organisation can face if they do not take their workplace safety seriously.
Facilities of all kinds are increasingly adopting mobile app-based incident management software as a way to streamline communication and response. However, considering the more traditional methods of handling incident management, what benefits do these systems hold?
To save time and money, we take a look at the five ways in which a mobile software solution helps with safety management:
The need to store incident management documents in physical storage can be severe for individuals to access. Data could be stored on a company intranet that could easily be inaccessible if the network fails.
Today, none of that is needed anymore because all relevant information can directly be accessed by employees via their mobile devices thanks to our Safety Management Mobile App.
For instance, through our software dashboard, your organisation might choose to provide contact lists and emergency protocol checklists. Employees can quickly call the right decision-maker in an emergency and will be able to easily contact you and other decision-makers when they are armed with this up-to-date information.
Employees are empowered to act decisively during an emergency with this improved access to information, which saves significant time.
Improved response times.
Responding quickly and effectively is one of the most essential abilities safety managers put a lot of thought into because it helps them prevent more damage or injury whenever an emergency occurs.
A significant amount of time and money can be saved through this; for instance, by avoiding lawsuits, minimising the clean-up period, encouraging a faster return to normal productivity or preventing the need to replace damaged equipment.
To significantly improve emergency response time, workplace safety teams can harness the full potentials of a mobile app-based incident management platform. Administrators can provide corporate safety plan, and documents such as checklists, maps, diagrams and more through the app to each end user’s mobile device as well as improve communications among team members.
When you deploy our safety software in your company, each of your employees will have access to all the relevant information, right in the palm of their hand when a crisis strikes. To update employees during an emergency, administrators can push real-time alerts and notifications through the app.
- Simplified compliance.
To save time and money, staying in compliance is one of the critical ways indeed. Thousands of dollars are lost each year by many organisations as a result of compliance penalties, while the vast majority spend untold work hours to avoid these same penalties.
Employees can have convenient access to the guidelines they need to adhere to safety procedures, health requirements and more through a mobile incident management software. The app makes it easy to identify and communicate with the right person simple when someone is unsure of what to do. In this regards, the compliance goal becomes much easier to achieve and maintain.
- A higher overall safety record.
To improve standing and reputation, usually, time and money are wasted by companies with poor safety records. To optimize safety throughout the business, getting closer to your goal of zero recordable incidents, empower your organisation with real-time access to corporate safety programs.
Lower healthcare costs.
Your organisation if operating in a higher-risk field may be accustomed to spending quite a bit each year on illness and injury claims. However, that annual figure can be impacted significantly by enabling faster and more effective incident response. To stay safe and healthy, employee the precise information required with an app, whether they are a located in corporate headquarters or out in the field.
