Building on Success
Following the successful installation of the new software solution, Islington Council reviewed other areas of the business to identify where additional changes could bring further benefits. With reassurance that the technology was tailored for purpose and would support other commercial streams, the health and safety team set about implementing new bespoke modules throughout the Council’s other information management systems, further enhancing the platform and its application.
Six years on, IE2 remains at the heart of Islington Council and continues to be a comprehensive system that incorporates key information management areas, such as: incident reporting for the entire Council, tracking of important staff training, asbestos, vaccination requirements and eye tests, and secure storage for all the Council’s health and safety documentation in a central location.
Crucially, IE2 also enables the Council’s Health and Safety Services team to manage all aspects of risk assessments, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) management, Alcumus ISOQAR certification, and compliance requirements – including Legionella, PAT testing and Asbestos, in a more efficient way. Additionally, the Council uses the software to manage the bookings and scheduling of its fire safety training – which is another essential revenue stream for the organisation.
