8 reasons you need an online Safety Systems


I am often asked why a company would need an online Safety System. In my opinion there are 8 very good reasons to adopt an online system versus the traditional paper-based system.

1. Legislation

  • Ensure you meet your legislative requirements - Our systems can demonstrate you are doing what is reasonably practicable to meet your WHS requirements.
  • Provides an auditable trial from initial reporting through management to close off - Ability to facilitate and prove consultation with all relevant parties
  • Provides a documented process (for Quality)
  • Allows workers to identify risks and report incidents (and near misses)

2. Efficiency

  • No more struggling with paper forms or endless phone tag between workers on site and managers on the move
  • Reduced lead-time, with the speed and agility to respond to changing market circumstances
  • Reduction of admin tasks and therefore operating costs - No more double or triple handling of data or paper forms to file
  • Interoperability with existing business systems if required – Use data for multiple purposes across business disciplines

3. Accessibility

  • Smart devices are ubiquitous - Simply log in and all your data and workflow is at your fingertips
  • No additional hardware or software required for a FiNAO system
  • Your system is accessible 24/7 from any location
  • FiNAO systems are charged per system not per user

4. Workflow

  • Automates and simplifies complex and often confusing processes
  • Form workflow is automated to suit your needs, eg. Report > Review > Assess > Close out

5. Notifications

  • Generate immediate email and / or SMS notifications to keep stakeholders up-to-date
  • Generate relevant notifications based on the data that has been entered, ie. based on the type and / or priority of incident
  • Nominate what notifications are sent, when, how often and what format
  • Generate prompts if stakeholders are not responsive or simply tardy – Supports accountability

6. Real-time

  • See who is doing what as it happens
  • Make proactive decisions based on real-time information
  • Provides senior management with real-time vision

7. Reports

  • Data accessible in real-time to make informed decisions
  • Ability to analyse reports and worker feedback
  • Generate, view and share configurable reports (as JPG, PDF or excel)

8. Security

  • Single authentication method used for access
  • Your data is 'hashed' and hosted in a secure cloud environment (using industry best practice)
