Embracing Digital Solutions for EHS Inspections

EHS inspections are essential in organizations, providing crucial indicators for health and safety management. However, their effectiveness and efficiency are often questioned. Companies wonder if they are obtaining the expected value and whether the time invested is being used optimally. There is a need to better measure and assess the output of these inspections. These are some of the key concerns surrounding EHS inspections.

EHS inspections have become an essential part of organizations, providing crucial leading indicators for health and safety management. While quantitative targets are common in various industries for management and supervision teams, the effectiveness and efficiency of these activities are often questioned. Are companies truly getting the expected value from their inspections? Is the time invested being utilized optimally? And how can the output of inspection activities be better measured and assessed? These are just a few of the many questions that may arise or have been raised.

Discussions also revolve around the time allocated for EHS inspections, with figures like 4 hours per day per EHS supervisor or one inspection per 200 man-hours being mentioned. Fortunately, advancements in technology present an opportunity to digitize this entire process, offering significant advantages for Health & Safety.

The primary benefit of digitization lies in time-saving. Instead of spending hours on inspections daily, Artificial Intelligence can efficiently handle these tasks, providing:

  • Continuous operation 24/7 with high accuracy
  • Objective and reliable results
  • Real-time notifications
  • A platform for colleagues to access inspection data simultaneously

The digital transformation also addresses the challenge of reporting unsafe acts/conditions and incidents. Companies have implemented behavioral safety programs and observation card systems to encourage reporting, but it's difficult to capture all incidents manually. Digitization can streamline this process, enabling quick reporting, analysis, and tracking of corrective actions.

Managing vast amounts of data from numerous reports requires prioritization with human involvement. Technology can help identify critical areas that need attention, such as excessive social distancing alerts. By implementing focused corrective actions like safety campaigns or safety talks, organizations can significantly reduce risks and enhance safety levels.

Moreover, digitalization aids in identifying hidden hazards and ensures comprehensive risk assessments, potentially preventing serious workplace accidents in the future.

In conclusion, embracing digital solutions for EHS inspections is a logical step forward. By utilizing technology to streamline inspections, reporting, and corrective actions, organizations can enhance safety, save time, and proactively mitigate risks.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
