How Will Donesafe Help in Your EHS Management?
1. Supports Safety Compliances and Practices
Donesafe’s lists of apps are ready to be deployed. All users need is determine the one they need and connect it to their Donesafe platform. Each app is also customisable to support any compliances and requirements. If no one app is suitable, don’t fret. Because Donesafe allows users to build their app from scratch with its built-in no-code drag-and-drop builder. Thereafter, with these settings keyed in, the platform can then perform its various work. Such as in audit, inspection, tracking etc., to perfect results. Humans may forget a step or two, but machines never. Good working condition machine that is. Hence, expect overall performance increase in safety compliances and practices! Organisation may set performance metrics in order to determine real results.
2. Greater Process Efficiency via Automation
Pretty self-explanatory if you had read point 1. The apps perform individually but integrated within one platform. Each app may perform a number of workflows, and they do so automatically as per the settings set. Users can say goodbye to the tedious repetitive work, while they focus others that may require their attention. This for instance, the analysis and reporting of insights from data which we will talk more about in the next point, point 3. That said, EHS management becomes more enjoyable when it is not all ‘hands-on’ and fulfilling when you can actually derive greater impacts from actions.
3. Data-Driven Decision-Making
As a professional, have you ever felt it hard to obtain management buy-in at times? With Donesafe, the apps record every workflow performed to provide real-time data analytics. And data are arguably the only reliable source worth basing business decision on. We believe that every organisation will benefit from a strong data-driven decision-making culture. So, Donesafe users are next-gen enabled, as they tap on data to support their future safety initiatives.
4. Enable Work On-The-Go
Whatever safety work you need done, you can do it via Donesafe. Its app works with all devices, i.e. PC, smartphones and tablets, both online and offline. Of course, offline features are limited. But they do help get things up to speed prior to having internet access. Saw a safety lapse? Wait no more. Report it via the app on your phone or tablet. On the transport home but management called asking about audit status? Open the app and report back with data. This is technically productivity at the maximum!
5. Safe Management of COVID-19
Since the discovery of the Coronavirus in 2019, aka COVID-19, new sets of laws and requirements had been put in place for its safe management. The compliance not only helps keep workers safe, but helps the workforce to re-open and gradually moves to normal function. Donesafe keeps up to time with two apps; the Infectious Disease app and Work from Home app. The former helps with confirmed case management, communication and self-monitoring while the latter support employee tracking, ergonomic assessment and reporting when working from home. Additionally, other established apps such as the visitor and document management app will come in handy to support safe distancing measures, and contact tracing respectively.
