Safety Goes Digital: A Review of Digital Safety Resources for the Workplace



Innovation is one of our core tenets here at Superior Glove, and as such we’re always keeping an eye out for new and exciting ways technology is being used in workplaces and various industries around the world to promote safety.

Given the proliferation of apps and digital resources, we decided to look into how these technologies are being used to promote safety in the workplace. It might sound surprising, but the right safety tech can make a noticeable difference in productivity, injury prevention and even, accident accountability. 

SafetyNet  

We’ve talked about the intersection of digital technology and safety before; however, it has taken on a whole other dimension.

Drop-in on nearly any workplace and you can find technology being utilized either as a supplemental tool in data entry, for example, or as a core piece in day-to-day operations. The catch is continuing to keep injury prevention top-of-mind. Having your digital safety resources complement that goal can be a terrific asset. 

SafetyNet, a safety management system developed by Predictive Solutions, was specifically created to be one of those resources.  

Ideal for use in the “on-the-go” workplace, SafetyNet uses a combination of predictive analytics, workplace-specific data, and its own Red Flag Prediction Model to proactively and efficiency identify injuries before they happen with up to 97% accuracy.

Designed to be seamlessly integrated into workplace tablets and mobile phones, SafetyNet can communicate information to those at risk in real-time. At the same time, it develops analytics-based reports to be used in the future to limit the possibility of a similar incident recurring.

eCompliance  

Designed to anticipate workplace incidents and injuries, eCompliance’s safety management tool can offer you an unprecedented view of the workplace. 

With the ability to more effectively analyze the risks presented by the workplace, eCompliance collects relevant workplace data and statistics while the patented Safety Participation Score™ identifies employees that could be at risk for injuries. Additionally, it gives those most at risk in the work environment the resources to quickly respond to an incident.  

For more information, please visit the eCompliance website.

Cority  

Cority’s Safety Management Solution was developed to help your workplace more effectively and efficiently track risk and potential hazards, while centralizing the data and incident reports.

While actively looking to shield employees from preventable hazards, the software can also track trends within the workplace, identifying specific environments and employees that may be at increased risk for injury.  

Additionally, the program can be used on mobile devices, allowing for more rapid, consistent injury response throughout the workplace.  

For more information, please visit the Cority website.

Gensuite  

With a focus on incident reduction and safety management, Gensuite was designed to be integrated directly into the workplace to track potential ergonomic, task-specific, and general risks. 

Gensuite’s Lockout Tagout software can not only streamline your equipment inventory, but also allows employees to quickly search through workplace procedures, keeping your most important assets organized with real-time visibility that communicates the necessary information to those that need it.  

For more information, please visit the Gensuite website.

When Safety Comes Calling…  

As the modern workplace continues to evolve, can worker demographics, behaviors and the technologies used be enough to keep them safe? 

Even if you chose to integrate safety management tools such as SafetyNet or eCompliance into your workplace, ultimately, the responsibility still lies with employees and employers to practice strong, effective safety habits.  

Whatever you do, don’t let poor safety habits sneak up on you. With the right tools and mindset, you can always stay two steps ahead.
