Emerging Technology and Data Digitization for Safety Managers
Safety is going to the drones
Your safety management platform should help leverage technology and not stand in its way. Take drones for example. They provide a new, emerging technology that offers valuable efficiencies and process improvements to safety operations. Aerial pictures and videos bring a unique perspective to site walk-throughs, safety inspections and preventative maintenance assessments. They can also provide valuable data and insight for post-incident analysis and mitigation.
Whether you’re looking for a comprehensive safety management software or drone adoption, new technology can help your safety office continuously improve.
A safety manager must always consider workflow and platform integration needs prior to adopting a new technology. It doesn’t help if the new technology requires a siloed process that complicates an existing workflow. It must have flexible compatibility. New tools must be intuitive in design so everyone across the organization can leverage the value. New tools must be easy to use.
Sospes understands the need for practical compatibility. That’s why our systems are built for 1.) ease of data entry 2.) system integration and 3.) new technology support. You can feel confident that the Sospes platform will be ready to support new technologies when you are. Take drone multi-media files for example…download your drone content directly to the Sospes incident report or inspection form to streamline workflow and direct data access.
Safety Management Software should leverage technology to make safety easier, not more difficult. Contact us at the link below for a personal, no obligation, system consultation on how Sospes safety management solutions can help you.
Digital Transformation for Safety Management Operations
Many safety managers are hesitant to make the move from paper-based management to a digital software solution because they’re concerned with the cost, migration workload, and organizational acceptance of a software solution.
All valid concerns honestly.
While you may have many questions about whether digital transformation of your safety management is right for you, let’s start by addressing the most common concerns cited above:
Cost: Most often we can provide a comprehensive safety management platform for a few dollars a month per employee. For the price of a sandwich from the cafeteria vending machine, you can provide your organization and workers with the benefits of a digital management system. This is also likely to include overall cost savings once you consider the total cost of a paper-based or manual system. Many times, paper-based safety managers don’t consider such things as:
- Data Re-entry Costs
- Re-entry Errors Cost
- Data Organization Efforts
- Report Creation Workload
- Updating Requirements
By avoiding these costs, a digital safety management system provides even more direct value.
Migration Workload: Sospes has worked with both customers migrating to their first digital management platform and customers migrating from another safety software system. No matter the situation, we are well prepared to help with data transfer and process integration. The Sospes customer service team will provide the tools, expertise and collaborative team-effort to get you through the migration process in weeks. Our process is a lot different from other systems that require months upon months for implementation.
Organizational Acceptance: Sospes designs solutions with one goal in mind: It must be easy to use. Why focus on that one goal above all others? Well, if the product isn’t easy to use and intuitive for the beginner, then the product will not provide the maximum value. We’ve seen organizational participation increase over 500% as employees find real value in the Sospes Safety Management Solution.
