How Technology is Impacting Today’s CSO
Today’s more progressive CSO’s are analyzing every department of their corporation, not simply the high risk ones and making sure that they are adhering to their company’s safety policies.
Sure the CSO has primary oversight of the facility-wide risk and safety program, but he or she is also responsible for directing process improvements that support the reduction of risk and other unintended adverse outcomes. When you are directly responsible and accountable for understanding a wide array of standards and regulations you better be able to monitor and have a direct view of what your employees and contractors are doing, up to the minute if necessary.
That’s where technology comes in. Are your employees, contractors, and their workers observing sound safety practices and performing as effectively as possible? Perhaps they are experiencing worker fatigue. Are you encountering increased absenteeism and turnover, reduced morale, and increased numbers of accidents and mistakes in your operations? Are you at risk for non-compliance with Federal, state, union, or industry regulations and guidelines, or are you at risk of litigation. Worker fatigue is frequently a major factor in these serious business problems.
Worker fatigue can lead to reduced productivity, increased costs, and possible violations of union rules and government regulations and in some cases lead to severe accidents.
The consensus among today’s CSO is that implementing a Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS) is not only the best solution but the only solution to all these potential problems.
At WorkTech, we can help. In fact our FRMS has been nominated for Product of the Year by Plant Engineering Magazine. We can implement an effective, automated FRMS that is tailored to meet the needs of your company.
