Safety Management Software
What is Safety Management?
Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting standards to which workplaces should hold themselves in order to protect their employees.
Safety management is the practice of collecting, investigating, and remediating workplace incidents in an effort to comply with these standards and create a healthier and happier work environment.
Work accidents happen, so best practice standards strongly encourage employers to investigate all incidents in which a worker was hurt or experienced a “close call” or “near miss.” Investigating a worksite incident provides personnel the opportunity to identify hazards in their operations and shortcomings in their health and safety programs.
In addition, while the word “accident” implies an event was random or unpredictable, the goal of safety management is to identify and implement the corrective actions necessary to prevent future incidents from occurring.
What are the Benefits of Safety Management Software?
According to best practice, health and safety management programs should not be focused on finding fault or blame in any particular employee or department or dismissing the incident as a one-off occurrence; rather, an incident investigation should be aimed at identifying and correcting root causes.
Root cause can only be uncovered if there is a robust and repeatable safety program in place, one where incidents can be tied to different departments, assets, people, and other facets of the organization. Best practice calls for a taxonomy to create these relationships, which enables you to collect trends in your data, identify the true root cause of an incident, and implement controls aimed at prevention.
Workplace safety software is also the best way to communicate across departments in one centralized platform. Incident investigations are often conducted by a supervisor, but to be most effective, these investigations should include managers and employees working together, since each bring different knowledge, understanding, and perspectives to the investigation.
By implementing health and safety software, you’ll also encourage employees to report incidents more often and more accurately. A survey published by Accident Advice Helpline revealed that hazards aren’t always reported in the workplace. 29% of respondents said they didn’t have the time, while 23% said they didn’t know who to report the hazard to. With an automated system like LogicManager’s, employees will have full and easy access to online incident forms.
