A System Apart: What Integrated Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Management Software Can Do for You

When thinking about corporate governance and your responsibilities for occupational health and safety, it can be easy to look at these issues as a box you need to check. Especially for businesses on the smaller side, getting too into the weeds on basic compliance systems is something for which you just don’t have the time and capacity. While big businesses can afford to shop around and modify systems to fit their needs, most small or medium enterprises settle for a basic system and the features that come with it out of the box.

It doesn’t have to be that way though. As a provider of health and safety software since 1996, integrum has designed a beautiful occupational health and safety system that’s used by both vast multinationals and much smaller businesses and is highly customisable no matter the size of your business. In short, this system offers world-class management to companies that can’t usually access this kind of product. At integrum, we pride ourselves on providing flexible solutions to all our clients.

A Different Take on OHS Management Software

When we first developed the integrum software platform, compliance requirements were much more straightforward than they are today. We know how hard it can be to keep up with changing standards and requirements which is why we built a highly flexible system that can change right along with your business and the external business environment.

Our OHS management system software has been implemented in numerous diverse situations, and we’ve learned a lot from every instance. So, when you use an integrum system, you’re drawing on the experience and expertise of numerous business environments and applications. We’ll work to understand the particular needs of your business and then configure a platform that speaks to these needs specifically. After all, who wants a system designed for someone else?

Hunter Water Shows What Great Software Can Do

One instance that really showcases the flexibility of the integrum occupational health and safety software is the Hunter Water case. Hunter Water is a water utility that provides water and wastewater services for over 500,000 in New South Wales. As such, the Hunter Water workforce is highly mobile and often in the field. This situation presented not only a few additional health and safety concerns but the challenge of providing for mobile reporting and information sharing.

So how did we approach this unique challenge? First, we met with key stakeholders and did extensive information gathering to understand the problem as deeply as we could. From there, we identified incident reporting while in the field as one of the most pressing needs for Hunter Water. Then with all this in mind, we built a simple to use reporting portal which is available both on a mobile device and even offline. Now, Hunter Water employees can report incidents in the field quickly, and our system notifies the right decision makers to deal with issues immediately.

This example is just one way a focused and personal approach can improve the building of software. No matter the size of your company, you’ll receive this same in-depth treatment to get to the bottom of what you need from an OHS system.
