Why do you need a Safety Management System? And why SafetyPlusWeb?
Imagine that you are in charge of safety at your company, and today two new employees are starting and need training. You come in early for this, around 7:00 am, but the emails and calls began pouring in over an hour ago. In fact, soon after meeting the trainees you received a particularly panicked call.
Your company serves several different large and demanding clients. Your team is working a client’s shutdown, and your 20-man crew is in the plant waiting to get started. Just one problem… Your driver delivering the construction forklift can’t get into the facility – he isn’t qualified. No one else on the crew can drive the truck, so you have to send another driver to the site. When your new driver finally arrives, the security guard notices that his driver’s license is expired. The plant manager is getting very angry – your team is delaying the shutdown – so he demands that the forklift be unloaded in the parking lot and driven into the plant. Now suspicious over your two mistakes, the plant’s safety manager begins asking who on your crew is actually qualified to drive the forklift…
Meanwhile your shop’s supervisor has sent you an email asking for his Monday morning toolbox talk. The crew is gathered, but he has nothing to present. You dig through your stack of papers, finally find what you’re looking for, and walk down to the shop.
A couple of hours have passed at this point when you finally make it back to the new employees. Things seem calm… until OSHA shows up. You spend the next hour escorting OSHA’s inspector through your shop. He asks to see your crane inspection certificates, company safety policy, and the training records for the 4 employees he saw operating the overhead cranes. He also asks to see your OSHA 300 logs for the last 3 years. After frantically digging through your files all you find is a note reminding you to do the training…
How can you wake up from this nightmare? You can consolidate all of your training and requirements records using a cloud-based safety management system.
No longer will you spend time searching for documents. You will receive notifications that prevent you from forgetting about toolbox talks. You will know, without question, who is qualified to drive a truck, operate a forklift, and who can get in to your clients facilities. You will have a record of inspections that will be so impressive; an OSHA inspector won’t feel the need to tour your facility. You will be able to record incidents, near misses, substance abuse testing records, renewal dates, equipment inspections, and more – all in one secure system. You will spend less time worrying, searching, recording data, and guessing. You will know what you need to know, when you need to know it, saving the company time and money while allowing you to do more of what you want to do – making sure your people are working safely.
