The next big thing in mobile isn’t apps – it’s user interface. And companies are taking note, especially when it comes to mobile safety solutions.
More and more companies are switching to mobile solutions to solve ongoing safety problems, promote better worker engagement, and develop stronger safety programs.
Here’s why mobile safety solutions are so helpful to companies like you and why your company should already be using them.
Increased Mobility and Accessibility
One of the most obvious benefits of mobile safety solutions is better mobility and on-the-go accessibility.
Let’s be honest: your workers aren’t tied to desks. They have to be on the move to meet challenges as they arise. Which means that a safety software tied to a computer just isn’t going to work for them.
When they’re working in the field, a mobile program is exactly what they need.
Instead of making do without their software until they get back to the office, staff can use smartphones or tablets to access their safety software wherever they go, whether they’re performing audits, checking machines, reporting hazards, or developing incident reports.
This allows them to be more efficient in getting their observations recorded so that you can see better results in real time.
And since mobile software is easier for your employees to access the software, you can use that software to improve overall compliance.
Think about all the compliance obligations you have to meet. Now think about how hard it is for your employees to keep track of everything manually. Picture what your employees could do with easy access to software that keeps them on top of compliance tasks, wherever they are.
With mobile software, you can update your team in real time. They’ll know right away if new procedures are rolled out and immediately apply those procedures to their tasks.
Getting employees on board is one of the most difficult tasks for any compliance manager. With mobile safety software, your employees can easily engage with safety protocols, complete training, and track compliance issues as they deal with them.
Your employees want to stay safe just as much as you want to keep them safe. If you make it easy for them to do that, they’re more likely to stay compliant. Mobile safety software allows you to do exactly that.
Stronger Organizational Culture
All of this translates into your larger goal: a better workplace safety culture.
People want to stay safe. You want to keep them safe. But everyone has full-time jobs to attend to, and frankly, they’re more likely to take the path of least resistance.
So, if you make it easy to stay safe, employees are more likely to do it. And if you reinforce your safety push with a company culture that prioritizes safety and responds quickly to problems, your employees are more likely to adhere to it.
This is difficult when you’re trying to address hazardous workplace mentalities, especially if you work in an industry rife with a “tough guy” stereotype, where workers are more likely to tough it out so they don’t appear weak to their colleagues.
The best way to counteract this is to actively promote an environment that rewards safe behaviors. Use mobile safety software to create open communication and easy reporting.
