Compliance is a key focus for companies and can affect a licence to operate and help prevent costly incidents. The digitising of management compliance aims to remove the risk of non-compliance and enable easy, secure capture, storage, management and distribution of document compliance information online and in real-time.
HSEC Online, developed by Saryx Engineering Group, is a cloud-based solution that is said to be accessible on any device, from anywhere, and at any time. The transparent, collaborative workflow platform is designed to simplify compliance management and help companies to achieve regulatory compliance by demonstrating to all stakeholders that the specific standards have been met. The solution is currently being implemented in both local and international markets, particularly in difficult and dangerous working environments such as mining, where real-time, accurate monitoring is essential.
“The digitisation of this complicated process is a vast improvement on the manual method, which was typically a physical ‘safety file’ that could have missing documents and remember, you don’t really check what isn’t there due to its manual nature. I would describe HSEC Online as providing a similar service in this arena as Internet banking does in eliminating the need to stand in a queue to see a teller; it is simple, smart, safe and saves you enormous amounts of time,” says computer scientist and co-founder Julie Mathieson.
Electronic engineer and co-founder Ingrid Osborne points out that an automated solution can assist in significantly reducing the number of potential work hours lost in a scenario where an injury occurs. Depending on the industry sector, she adds that a company may find itself shut down while a thorough investigation is performed.
Mathieson says that HSEC Online is flexible enough to help any company or contractor manage and control a range of issues, from legal matters to personal protective equipment management, not to mention audits, risk management and of course all the required documentation around emergency procedures and organisational safety policies, in a safe and secure manner.
