Digitising Health & Safety – Empowering a Self-Service Culture

The health and safety industry has traditionally been perceived to rely on a heavily paper based system. With the continued advancements in technology all around us, as Health and Safety professionals we now need to determine how we can best embrace it and use it to empower our workforce to do their jobs, safely. In this presentation we will share our journey of developing a variety of simple, accessible and cost-effective technology solutions that we’ve implemented to support our workforce in ‘pulling’ the information they need, when they need it.

One of our key goals has been to reduce the perceived administrative burden of HSE by simplifying the capture of information. Another has been to empower our workforce through delivering new digital platforms that allow end users to self-search for HSE information along with developing digital reports that allow users to drill into HSE data. In implementing these solutions we have been able to deliver improvements in how we capture information and how we share and learn from each other to reduce the risk of repeat incidents occurring.

Like many journeys, ours hasn’t been a quick one and we will share with you some of the lessons we’ve learnt along with way. Our journey though is proving there is an appetite for self-service solutions and data driven insight in the health and safety sector and it is only just the beginning.
