.
This is largely down to much tougher penalties for corporate manslaughter and
health and safety offences. While there’s never been any doubt that good health
and safety practices are morally right, they have never made better business
sense either.

As such, the demand for up-to-date EHS software is at
an all-time high.

But how do these software programs benefit organisations?
Here’s 6 reasons why
might be the right investment for your
business in 2018…

Safer Workplace

First and foremost, EHS software helps to ensure the
health and safety of every individual within the workplace… but only if it
used!

Ease of use is the number 1 factor in increasing user
adoption, resulting in more reports. More reports mean more data for EHS Managers
to make tactical and strategic decisions with (as we will see in point 2, below).

In addition, investment in EHS software emphasises that
you, as a business, take
seriously – a vital message to colleagues,
employees and authorities alike.

EHS management systems allow data to be centralised, tracked and monitored. Strong reporting functionality, data insights and dashboards are key to analysing trends and putting proactive safety measures in place.

Legal Compliance

Modern EHS software can help to ensure your
organisation meets current legal requirements. Should a party make a claim, you
can easily find all information pertaining to the
in one,
centralised place including:

  • Witness statements
  • Photo evidence
  • Steps taken to reduce risk.

Spreadsheets or paper-based systems can make legal
situations an administrative nightmare.

Business Benefits

With tougher penalties in place for health and safety offences, the financial benefits of good health and safety practices in 2018 are bigger than ever. Fewer accidents, means:

Time efficiencies can also be achieved due to information being centrally stored and collated – ready for much quicker and smoother procedures.

Mobile Incident Reporting

has been
improving for several years. But it is only now, in 2018, that we are seeing widespread
adoption. So much so, that organisations

sufficient mobile capabilities risk being left behind.

The ability to record incidents at
source can improve the speed and accuracy of reporting, while offline working
gives access to record incidents even when no signal is available.

Previous EHS Tool Outdated

Spreadsheets have always been a useful and inexpensive
program for the business world. In fact,
still use
spreadsheets as their main method of internal communication. But are they
still fit for purpose when it comes to EHS?

  • Spreadsheets have very few collaboration
    opportunities
  • Spreadsheets are difficult to use – especially on
    mobile devices
  • Without strict document management tools in place, it
    is easy to overwrite, delete or lose valuable data.

In addition to spreadsheets, legacy EHS systems may not have the
functionality or flexibility necessary for the modern workplace.

Conclusion

. Not only does
it make good sense for the safety and well-being of your employees and
colleagues, it makes good business sense as well. There are a number of EHS software solutions on the market with varying levels of complexity. If you think AVA might be right for your business,
