Light vs. Detailed Audits
If you are pressed for time the light protocol is a useful tool to expose the critical audit issues on a high level basis expending less time than on a detailed audit.
Every incident has a price tag. Apart from the human suffering and morale issues they also cost time and money.
Consider this, if a company works on a 10% margin, and let’s say they suffer an incident that costs the company R10 000. They would need to generate R100 000 of sales before the loss is recouped.
Also, if something has happened once, chances are it will happen again.
Incident management allows you to track down the root cause and prevent it from happening again.
Real Time Continuous improvement
The incident management module gives you the information to make improvement fast. Consider that most Health and Safety plans happen on an annual basis. Now imagine if you had the critical information at your fingertips that would allow you to make focused interventions that result in substantial decreases in incidences.
The Golden rules of incident managementThere are a set of golden rules for incident management. These rules represent the best practices. The system has been setup to guide you automatically through these rules and ensure you follow best practice and legislative requirements are addressed.
No longer is it the sole responsibility of the SHEQ manager to manage safety. Actions can be assigned to various business units and their response is measured. The software will keep records on all identified causal factors. This will highlight causal factors that are constantly occurring, allowing you to feed accurate data into your risk assessment.
Actions are assigned to managers
The Risk Assessment module allows you to identify aspects and hazards per tasks and activities. Assess these according to your specific matrix and prioritise according to ratings.
