Using Software and Mobile Technology to Manage and Improve HSEQ

23 Aug 2017, by Laurien Maerman

In the lead up to the third annual Safety in Action Show, we spoke to Adrian Manessis, Business Development Manager at myosh, to gain a better understanding of how software and mobile technology can be implemented into work environments to manage and improve HSEQ.

Adrian Manessis will present on Day One at the Safety in Action Show and discuss the benefits of software based Safety Management Systems, how work HSEQ is managed and improved through sustainable, action based processes. He will demonstrate how organisations achieve real change in safety habits, productivity and performance.

What inspired you to start working with myosh?
Myosh is an innovative company with a great team focused on developing solutions that really help organisations improve Work Health and Safety.  Our solutions evolve based on industry feedback and global compliance requirements. I was inspired by seeing how organisations could use myosh to make significant improvements by not only preventing injuries but also making safety an integral part of everyday activities.  These measurable improvements directly translate into significant risk reduction leading to a reduction in insurance related expenses.

If a company implements processes to manage and improve work HSEQ, what are the major benefits they will gain from doing so?
 By implementing processes to manage and improve work HSEQ, organisations can adopt easier, paperless processes and thus benefit from measurable reductions in injuries and associated costs subsequently reducing insurance premiums. Organisations will also benefit from the easy processes which encourage workers to participate and thus results in an overall improvement in the culture of safety and in productivity. Organisations will also see benefits through improvements in tender opportunities, risk reduction and brand outlook.

Myosh makes it easier for organisations to implement compliant processes that align with global safety standards.  These improvements are facilitated by the use of mobile apps for simplified reporting which improves incident and hazard identification, guided cloud based forms that facilitate incident and hazard investigation and paperless, customisable inspections integrate with action management for fast improvements and seamless productivity. Moreover,  modules like Training Management, Injury Management and Contractor Management simplify processes and improve gap analysis, chemical and asset registers provide quick, secure ways to access and verify vital safety data and online learning enables verified inductions and improves learning efficiency. Myosh significantly helps organisations to implement compliant processes which have major benefits for organisations.

What are some of the processes you’d suggest a company can implement to manage and improve work HSEQ?
In order to manage and improve work HSEQ, I would suggest a company manages the engagement and ongoing use of contractors, identifies and manages hazards in all aspect of operations, proactively performs risk assessments and investigates incidents to ensure they cannot occur again with outputs feeding in to hazard management processes. Training records should be maintained to ensure all staff and contractors are trained to perform the tasks at hand, and an inspection/ audit regime should be implemented alongside testing programs for equipment. The implementation of these processes will greatly aid a company in their management and improvement of work HSEQ.

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Show?
The show gives us an opportunity to mix with new and existing clients. We are very excited to introduce new technology that provides extremely flexible possibilities for workflow/form configuration, with inbuilt dashboard and mobile functionality. Our team at the bright yellow stand will be able to share and demonstrate just how flexible the myosh solution can be.
