Risk Manager's Modular Approach Covers All The Bases
Our combination of fully integrated modules provides a comprehensive platform to record, monitor and control your health and safety, risk and compliance requirements.
Action Management Module
There are many safety related processes but their purpose is always the same – to ensure the right actions (or activities) are identified and completed so your hazards and associated risks are effectively managed.
- If you have a critical risk, you may need an action to implement a control measure or to monitor that the controls are effective
- If you complete an investigation, you need to address the immediate and underlying causes which requires actions to be undertaken
- If you complete an audit, you want actions to ensure any non-conformance are addressed.
Each year you should establish plans to improve your systems, so you want to ensure those proactive actions are completed and result in improved system effectiveness.
The Action Management Module is designed to make this easy for you:
- Actions are easily assigned to staff, business areas and sites
- Automatic reminders are sent when they fall due or overdue
- Repeat action functionality makes it simple for staff to keep on top of recurring tasks
- Powerful push reporting, weekly reminders and prominent positioning on the system dashboards all assist in keeping staff and managers aware of action status, upcoming tasks and overall compliance.
