As seasons change, so does work volume, production and process
As the summer season comes to a close, we are steadily approaching one of the busiest times of the year for many industries.
Several operations experience increased demand from customers and also extend that demand to suppliers and contractors. In essence, work volume increases across the board for all parties involved. Often, in order to meet increased demands, work production must also increased (e.g. hours, staff, efficiency).
This reality naturally creates an opening for increased workplace safety risks, so how are we supposed to balance increased work demands and safety on a day-to-day basis?
1. Establish efficient communication procedures - keep everyone in the loop as things happen and consider having a reporting procedure in place.
2. Assess safety risks BEFORE the job starts - increased work flow = bigger paper trail; ensure hazard identification and control is implemented proactively to prevent incidents - not reactively in response to those that could have been prevented.
3. Ensure safety checks and assessments are actually being done - when we get busy, safey often takes a back seat; organizations are subject to greater pressure to perform and this cascades down directly to employees.
Our highly-customizable app is designed to effectively identify hazards and controls before work starts, so your team can get on with the job with the confidence that it is safe. Picture functionality, real-time sharing and approval enhances communication, while the increased need for document control and recordkeeping is easily managed digitally.
Stop chasing down paperwork. Go digital.
