As of January 19, 2016, 8 Australian workers have been killed at work in 2016 according to Safe Work Australia. Meanwhile, the agency reveals that the accommodation and food services industry was identified as a priority industry in the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012–2022 (the Australian Strategy). This strategy was developed through consultation with governments, industry, unions and the public. Priority industries were based on rates of injuries, diseases or fatalities, or due to the nature of hazards found in each industry.
Safety in the Workplace
It’s every business owner’s dream to run a thriving business that is safe from accidents, injuries and fatalities. However, some industries are more exposed to risk than others. For instance, supermarkets and other retailers report more injuries than any other industry. Meanwhile, the mining, materials and heavy industry sectors report the highest number of employee deaths resulting from injury although they also reported the lowest injury rates.
So how exactly do you prevent injury and death in your workplace? They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this case, it helps to be prepared for any eventuality. Thus, preventing accidents and injury should be your number one safety goal.
How Mobile Forms Promote Safety
Now that you’ve made the decision to put safety first, you need to follow through on that goal by putting in safety measures in your workplace and across your organization. The first thing you need to do is go paperless. “Why paperless?” you may ask. It’s your best bet against the occurrence of unwanted accidents.
Using mobile forms, for instance, can increase efficiency all around as data is now stored in the “cloud” and not written on paper that’s been piling up in your office. With digital forms, you get accurate data collection, which means you can focus on your safety and security measures without having to worry about losing vital company or customer information.
Your mobile safety checklists enable you to conduct inspections and then propose and implement safety measures to ensure that you and your entire mobile workforce will avoid accidents, injury or fatalities in the future.
Formitize helps you cut costs and increase efficiency with “cloud” technology, which allows you to stay on top of things. Now you too can create and implement your own safety management plan, create and maintain mobile safety checklists across every area of your organization, and stay up-to-date with new safety regulations from Safe Work Australia.
Thanks to paperless technology, you can create your own mobile safety checklists, conduct regular inspections, and use the data that you’ve gathered to promote safety and security in your company.
