Key features of your OHS management system software

1) Hazard and incident reporting

Hazard and incident reporting is an important part of any OHS management system.

By identifying and reporting hazards and incidents, employers can take proactive steps to prevent injuries and illnesses from occurring.

In addition, hazard reports can be used to investigate incidents, identify trends, and implement proactive measures to prevent future accidents.

Furthermore, by maintaining an up-to-date record of all hazards and incidents, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to OHS compliance. WHS hazard and incident reporting is an essential tool for protecting the health and safety of employees.

2) Safety audits and inspections

Implementing a safety inspection schedule is one of the smartest things you can do for your business.

Not only will it help you comply with OHS legislation, but it will also create a safer workplace for your employees.

By scheduling custom and ongoing inspections, you can identify and address potential hazards before they cause an accident or injury.

And by keeping records of all inspection activities, you can track your progress and ensure that your safety procedures are up to date. In short, safety inspection scheduling and record-keeping are essential components of any effective OHS management system.

3) Risk management and assessment

Identifying hazards and managing risk is one of the most important features of OHS software.

By tracking employee exposure to potential hazards, OHS software can help businesses ensure that their employees are safe and healthy. It can also help businesses to investigate accidents and incidents, and to develop strategies for preventing them in the future.

By identifying patterns of risk, OHS management can help businesses to make their workplaces safer for everyone.

4) Equipment registry

The equipment and plant registry module is a powerful tool that lets you seamlessly manage all equipment, including maintenance requirements and record of service.

With this module, you can easily keep track of your equipment inventory, schedule maintenance tasks, and generate reports.

You can also assign equipment to relevant team members so they can easily and clearly monitor it.
