Managing the risks associated with machinery safety and compliance can be a challenge.
Managing safety can be time consuming and demanding, and it can keep you away from the job at hand. However, the innovation of safety and risk management software has turned this around, making it a much less tedious process, while improving the safety of machinery at the same time. Find out more about how software can improve machinery risk management and safety in this article.
Assesses risk and identifies hazards
Identifying hazards while completing machinery risk assessments is a highly beneficial functionality of risk management software made for the machinery industry. It can streamline the assessment and rating of the risks, and recommend the best possible measures to control hazards based on the hierarchy of controls. This can save you hours of time not having to manually assess each hazard, and boost your confidence knowing exactly what hazards are present on your machine, the risks they pose, and that they are controlled in the best possible way.
Integrates safety standards
Integration of all relevant safety standards applicable to machinery is critical to ensuring compliance. If you’re looking for a software that is backed by legislation, Plant Assessor is the platform for you. It is designed to ensure your machines are compliant with legislation, regulations, standards and codes of practice, providing you with an additional level of assurance that your fleet is meeting all the necessary safety requirements.
Monitoring the safety and compliance of each machine in your fleet or on your project can be a challenge. Software can help you to keep an eye on your machines with real-time monitoring. Platforms that have this functionality allow you to monitor the safety and compliance status in one, digital location, and you’ll know immediately if any machine requires attention.
Manages safety and compliance documentation
Software can offer a set and forget approach to servicing and maintenance schedules. Instead of trying to manually track when each machine in your fleet is due for servicing, set digital reminders for intervals of your own preference or as recommended by the manufacturer. This can help create a solid preventative maintenance program, keeping your machines in top condition and in turn reducing downtime.
Manages safety and compliance documentation
Storing machinery safety and compliance documentation, and sharing it with key stakeholders, can be a hassle, but software can make this an issue of the past. Many platforms allow you to store all of your documents in the cloud, and ensure it is easily accessible for when you and your operators need it. Cloud-based platforms also provide an easy way to share documents to anyone, anywhere, at any time, meaning you can also share with clients and other interested parties.
Safety data logging
The recording of machinery safety data is another benefit of using risk management software for your fleet. Data is a key component of business intelligence, and is very valuable in managing safety. Software platforms that capture safety data relating to your machinery can inform you, and allow you to make more educated decisions about your fleet and its safe and compliant operation.
