Quality, Health, Safety, Environment (QHSE) software is a management system that incorporates common elements of ISO 9001, ISO 45001, and ISO 1401 standards. It’s often used in the oil and gas industries, but the best QHSE software is flexibly structured to adapt to any industry.
It’s often used synonymously with EHS software. But no matter what you call it, QHSE software is a solution that makes it easy to focus on the safety of your most valuable asset: your employees.
If you’re still trying to convince upper management to take the plunge, here are a few reasons why QHSE software should be your next major safety investment.
Save Time and Money
One of the foremost benefits of QHSE software is that it helps businesses save time and money.
Yes, it’s a safety software. That’s the whole point. But when you think about it, good safety practices directly translate into good business practices.
Unfortunately, EHS teams have to waste a lot of time on rote administrative tasks. The problem is that when your EHS team is buried in paperwork, they don’t have the time to pay attention to evolving safety issues. Even the most talented teams will have slip-ups.
QHSE software allows your team to automate administrative tasks and focus their energies on the bigger picture. That means they have more time to build strategies and bolster overall workplace efficiency.
Let’s say, for example, that your company is growing. It’s growing so fast, in fact, that your systematization can’t keep up. This is where software can help, providing you with scalable solutions that grow alongside you.
No matter how fast your workday flies by, QHSE software can help ensure that your whole team stays organized, efficient, and safe.
Better Consistency, Better Data
Part of the reason why QHSE software allows you to save money is that it makes it easy to improve your consistency.
The keys to good data are consistent collection and consistent entry. Better still, you need entry and collection to deliver the same level of quality every single time.
Here’s the problem – your team is only human. There’s only so much time in a day. All the training and talent in the world can only get you so far.
That’s where QHSE software can pick up the slack.
Instead of worrying about collecting and entering data, your EHS staff can focus on processing the data. That means they’re focusing on progress and delivering real results and they have greater flexibility to fix a problem when they see it – or prevent a problem before it happens.
This means that you can do more than just comply with regulations. You can adapt to the changing regulatory environment and ensure that your business has the tools to grow stronger than ever before.
Improved Performance for a Stronger Bottom Line
It all adds up to one thing: improved performance for a stronger bottom line.
Your company’s value is predicated on your employees. If they aren’t safe, they can’t do their jobs, which means your company can’t deliver on your promises. Plus, low morale in unsafe workplaces means that employees are less productive even when accidents don’t happen.
If you have the power to prevent incidents and improve your company value with one simple tool, why wouldn’t you make the investment?
