Implementing an Electronic EHS System

We get asked all the time, why should our company digitize our EHS Management System? Especially when the paper, pen and clipboard approach has served us so well over the years...

Well, the answer is simple!

For one, we help streamline safety by combining multiple safety processes into one system. And the transition from paper, pen and clipboard to a digital format will enhance real-time reporting.

Other benefits include consistency across all departments within your organization, safety updates are implemented uniformly and immediately when changes are made to the database, our dashboard pages help to quickly analyze data, we provide a means to track corrective actions electronically, there are automated performance reports to keep everyone engaged in safety, and the list goes on.

We think one of the less tangible benefits that comes with a system like ours, but no less important, is the peace of mind you get knowing that your safety data is centrally stored and backed up, it’s kept in a consistent format, and it’s available to you or others on your team at a moments’ notice.

Please read SourceForge Q&A with Steve Polich, CSP, President/Co-Founder of Safety Reports for more information.

Checklist Updates

Our Project Team has been working overtime on building out our checklists this past month! Here is a summary of some of our most recent changes:

We have added a new category called Sanitation to our MSHA Surface Mining Checklist.

We've added several of the Table 1 Tasks for the Respirable Silica standard to our Construction 1926, CalOSHA and EM385 checklists (i.e.  Tuckpointing, Jackhammers, Masonry Saws and more).

Several Life Safety Code checklist items have been added to our CMS Healthcare Checklist.
Coming very soon, we'll have available two new checklists for those in the Maritime Industry.

One of the checklists will cover 29 CFR 1917 for Marine Terminals and the other for 29 CFR 1918 for Longshoring Operations

Lastly, we'll soon be coming out with a new checklist covering CalOSHA's Mining & Tunnelling.
OSHA's Top 10 List with a New Twist

We realize that most everyone has already seen the list of OSHA's Top 10 violations for FY 2020...but, here at Safety Reports, we have a different take on this topic.

Did you know that our customers can create their own OSHA Top 10 List using our app?

Our very own Pete Lass has put together a video that shows how you can generate a report using our app to create your companies own list of OSHA violations. 

Having a list of Top 10 Violations for your company is useful on many levels.  Primarily, it can be used to guide your future training efforts in order to better target your problem areas. But, it also helps increase employee awareness and engagement when the top 10 list is shared with your team.

If you want to learn how to use our app to create your own OSHA Top 10 List, please watch this video!
Be sure to contact us if you have any questions.
