Safety Audit Software
Safety in the Factory
"Safety first" is not only a meaningless slogan, but a policy supported by a number of principles, carried out by most manufacturing companies. Information boards placed in front of an increasing number of factories prove the importance of safety in manufacturing operations. On them, there is no information on the production volume, the percentage of shortages or the number of complaints. Instead, there is information on OHS in the production plant, including: the number of days without an accident and the date of the last accident.
Production is full of threats that affect the safety of employees: high voltage, heavy objects, high storage, harmful substances, extreme temperatures, moving parts or a rapidly changing workplace arrangement. All of this can lead to accidents causing damage to your health or even loss of life.
Organizations, however, have a number of tools at their disposal that can significantly reduce the impact of threats on employee safety:
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Training and increasing the safety culture in the workplace
- Improving the ergonomics of workplaces
- Appropriate layout of the production hall
- Regular auditing of security standards
Safety audits are one of the most effective tools in ensuring and maintaining high safety standards in a factory.
Safety Audits using Action Audit
The Action Audit module available in the Action Plan software works perfectly when it comes to security auditing in a production plant. Safety audits can be carried out independently by performing the so-called Safety Walk as well as 5S/6S audits.
As in the case of other types of audits, the Safety Audits also offer advanced configuration options, including:
- the ability to create your own checklists
- the ability of building groups of many auditors
- the ability to schedule audits, also on multiple layers
Importantly, all detected irregularities are immediately addressed and forwarded to the person responsible for the implementation of corrective actions. The auditor, using a mobile phone, in addition to describing a potentially dangerous situation, may attach photo documentation to the audit.
Key benefits of implementing 5S/6S audits using Action Audit software
Quick identification of potentially dangerous situations - When it comes to safety, it is especially important to prevent accidents by quickly identifying potentially hazardous situations. Lack of insulation on a high-voltage cable, spilled liquid on a communication route or the lack of housing over a moving part, sooner or later, may lead to an accident. Quick elimination of these types of threats is the key to increasing security.
Improve the safety culture of the factory - employees focused on production, ensuring high-quality products and reporting results often forget about safety issues. Regularly conducted audits really contribute to increasing the awareness of threats existing at the workplace and to improving the safety culture of the entire organization.
Reduction of the number of accidents and their severity - the ultimate goal, of course, is to improve the safety of the factory, which can be measured by the number, frequency and severity of accidents. Organizations that reliably and rigorously control all aspects of security can boast long, several years, periods without any accidents.
