New safety app by Effective Software will help businesses comply with stringent safety rules
Effective Software has announced the launch of its new safety app: Engage App. It is a complete safety solution which increases the ability of manufacturers to prevent workplace incidents and help businesses comply with ever-evolving legislation, ensuring they avoid incurring fines and, potentially, prison sentences.
The app is able to capture data surrounding any potential incident area in a time-efficient and cost-effective manner, and employees can engage with health and safety compliance and incident prevention using the app on a mobile device. Engage App can be used across industries, including manufacturing, engineering, utilities, logistics, education, and pharmaceutical among others.
Users can capture and share imagery, locations, and create their own custom categories with minimal training. Actionable insights are shared across Effective Software’s safety platform, so safety is improved in real-time.
The latest, most stringent Safety Offences Sentencing Guidelines, implemented last year, mean businesses are being found guilty of more health and safety offences than ever. The new rules mean more responsibility is placed on board members and directors if an incident occurs, and prison sentences are already being handed out to the guilty.
“We’re aiming for a simple experience,” says Effective Software’s Founder and CEO Darragh Geoghegan, “where an employee can spot a hazard, report an incident and create an action in an instant capturing basic details including photos and locations, and report it, with a minimum of fuss and clicks.
“Use of the Effective Software platform has already saved our clients hundreds of thousands of euros in insurance and pay-out expenses and with increasing additional legal scrutiny, the systematic and holistic capture of workplace hazards and incidents is now more crucial than ever before” he added.
“We have many more features and product modules we plan to layer on and around the Engage App experience after the first product release is complete, but the initial focus is to deliver an easy to use app that encourages positive health and safety engagement by all.”
