Managing health and safety in the workplace is now easier with the integration of a SHEQ software tool. Choosing a suitable software for your organisation can prove difficult and cost the business significant resources in time and money. Here is our checklist for the main things to consider in your search.

1. Functionality

System functionality is the most important in SHEQ software. A good SHEQ solution oversees functions such as risk assessments, maintenance checks, incident reporting and training. It also makes legal compliance efficient and compiles audit trails.

Ensure the solution you choose includes multiple modules for environmental, health, and safety regulations, and don’t skimp on compliance. The software should be compatible with popular applications or allow your team to add custom functionality if desired.

2. Accessibility

A major advantage of a SHEQ system must be its user accessibility in comparison with the tedious traditional tasks to update employee data and log in incidents manually. Your software solution should make it easy for everyone involved.

Look out for user-friendly software that loads fast, prompts or guides employees, and can be accessed online and offline, via mobile devices. This allows employees access to the system in the field so they can log incidents when they happen.

Note: The latest version of XGRC Software 4.0, including SHEQX, has offline functionality.

SHEQX’s solution transforms your company’s data into rich visuals for you to collect and organise, so you can focus on what matters to you. Stay in the know, spot trends as they happen and push your business further.

3. Integration

Ideally, you would want the SHEQ system to provide a central location for managing locations, sites, access rights and processes. The ability to provide true real-time communication and integrate data across the organisation from production to sales is invaluable and can dramatically improve operations and ROI.

4. Scalability

System scaling to multiple facilities, contract manufacturers, suppliers and customers is important. Factor in scalability in a SHEQ solution to cover short-term and long-term goals. A modular solution easy to expand that feeds real-time data to the enterprise ensures every company facility is getting the attention it needs.

Our SHEQX (Safety, Health, Environment and Quality) management solution, part of the XGRC product range, is an integrated management system that aggregates SHEQ data in a single, auditable database, to manage analysis, reporting and compliance effectively.
