Do you send Health and Safety hazard alerts to people on-site?

Posted by:Erin Brown onMarch 31, 2017


Do you use automatic Health and Safety Hazard alerts to let staff, visitors, and contractors on your sites know about what could hurt them?

Do you only have a whiteboard hazard register?

Would you like to be able to send hazard alerts straight to the people who need to know about the hazard?

And, would you like them to acknowledge those alerts, so they are on file should something go wrong, or for when the auditor comes knocking?

Every place of work in general needs to have a hazard management system.

This needs to include:

  • a clear way for people to identify and then report hazards
  • a straight-forward way to inform people a hazard might affect (or ultimately hurt) about what’s going on.

Covering these points will go a long way to an organization being a compliant and responsible employer.

Using WhosOnLocation (our visitor, employee, contractor, and evacuation management software) there are number of ways you or your organization’s Health and Safety Manager can send hazard alerts to people at your location (or working off site).

 

At a sign-in kiosk

Let everyone or a specific set of people know about a hazard by way of pop-up alert when they sign into your site using WhosOnLocation.

You can set up a rule by where the hazard has to be acknowledged before that person is allowed on-site or set another process in motion.

You can also add specific hazards (such as scheduled plumbing maintenance – no water – on Tuesday the 12th) in this SMS.

 

At a sign-out kiosk

Alert people signing out, most likely an employee, to a hazard that will be present on-site tomorrow (for example the floor is being fixed in the lobby) and have them acknowledge that notice. This can work as a “heads-up,” or to notify people signing out of something on-site but past the sign-out kiosk, say in the carpark.
