Promoting safety awareness and transparency in organisations is becoming easier thanks to a new partnership between the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and specialist quality, health, safety and environment (QHSE) software provider Airsweb.
The exclusive partnership will give RoSPA clients access to health and safety management software, which enables them to access real-time safety data and create reports, graphs and performance trend analyses that can support them in decision-making.
The state-of-the-art, web-based technology will be accessible from anywhere in the world via an internet browser. This means the system can be used “on the go” as well as at fixed work stations. The system can also be accessed by multiple users in an organisation, meaning, for example, that site managers in one country could be adding local data at the same time as a group health and safety manager was contributing group performance from head office - saving time for all.
The functionality of the high-security software lends itself well to facilitating benchmarking, particularly in relation to RoSPA audits and the annual RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards - the areas of RoSPA’s work that will benefit from the partnership. The awards judging process will also be made easier, with judges being able to log-in online to view entries.
Frances Richardson, RoSPA’s director of operations, said: “There are a multitude of benefits for RoSPA and Airsweb to work together. The fast-growing, dynamic approach and capability of Airsweb and its state-of-the-art, world-class technology provides a platform for RoSPA’s Occupational Health and Safety Awards, and for RoSPA’s range of workplace safety audits.
“RoSPA is keen to focus on health and safety content development rather than producing specialist systems for its auditing and awards. The partnership is mutually beneficial, and whereas there is already a considerable overlap in the number of organisations throughout the world who trade with both RoSPA and Airsweb we expect this to increase with the new joint developments planned for a launch later in the year.”
Jason Wright, business development director at Airsweb, said: “We are extremely proud and excited at the prospect of working with RoSPA through this exclusive partnership. We believe that it will provide significant benefits to both organisations and perhaps more importantly to our respective clients. Airsweb provides QHSE web-based software management solutions to some of the world’s largest organisations and the access to subject matter expertise can only strengthen our offering. The opportunity to work with such a prestigious and internationally renowned organisation is quite simply a privilege.”
