No matter what sector you operate in, accidents and incidents are an occurrence that organisations want to avoid. As technology develops, businesses have the opportunity to work across multiple sites and locations, resulting in increased difficulty in having an overarching view of operations and risk management. As such, the traditional approach towards accident and incident management results in many challenges for an organisation.
Disparate systems - The use of spreadsheets and paper-based forms means that different records are being completed, often of a different quality.
Reporting inaccuracies - Without high quality reports, an organisation cannot truly understand the how what and why accidents occur, increasing the likelihood of them happening again.
Lack of real-time data - this can result in delays when contacting the necessary parties and also limits the evidence that can be collected as items may be forgotten.
