Keeping people safe requires more than a hard hat
Operating a safe work environment requires a culture of people who understand that they are responsible, not just for their own safety, but for that of their peers as well. But systems that don’t engage with workers, or require that it be done after the fact, squander the opportunity to instill that culture.
By engaging workers at their actual place of work, and in real terms – as opposed to after the fact, or in abstract scenarios – a mobile platform with the analytics to uncover dangerous situational patterns can improve transparency and eliminate the inevitability of workplace accidents.
An engaging, easy-to-use, mobile observations solution can be transformative in uncovering dangerous behavior and situations, identifying near misses, and instilling a culture where people know how to recognize and resolve issues related to their and their peers’ safety.
By trending items like near misses and accidents over time, and sharing those results not just with executives but with the entire organization, workers come to understand that their safety is valued and their participation in the program yields real results — which leads to more participation and more data in a virtuous closed-loop circle.
The most important goal for any safety-conscious organization is making sure every person gets to go home at night to their loved ones. If ad hoc reporting, full audit trails, and configurable modules help regulators and auditors more easily understand that priority is being met, so much the better.
