No matter what sector you operate in, accidents and incidents are an occurrence that every organisation wants to avoid. Today’s organisations often operate across multiple sites and locations, resulting in the challenge of effectively creating an overarching health, safety and risk management strategy. As such, a traditional, paper-based or manual approach towards accident and incident management results in many challenges for businesses to overcome.
Disparate systems - The use of spreadsheets and paper-based forms means that the standard of record keeping is often inconsistent and cannot be tracked effectively
Reporting inaccuracies - Without accurate, high quality management information, an organisation cannot truly understand how and why accidents occur, increasing the likelihood of them happening again
Lack of real-time data - This can result in a delayed response to key actions, a lack of management insight and incomplete audit trails
