Within the Aged Care Industry there are many employees administering care to multiple patients. As many staff members are constantly switching roles, managing paperwork and documentation can become an extremely difficult task.

With Online WHS Systems, we have created a transparent, easy-to-use cloud-based safety management system, that allows the user to create checklists, incident reports, qualifications, vaccination reports and more.

We have utilised the ability to use QR Codes that allows the user to create various reports and corrective measures, through a step-by-step investigation. This then creates a solution where actions can be set, staff members are accountable for their actions and reports can be developed to ensure not only compliance but continuous improvement.

Some of our clients include:

What Online WHS Systems focuses on in this Industry

  • To make safety easy – All a carer needs to do is scan a QR Code to complete a form, checklist or report a hazard or incident.
  • To make safety accessible – Online WHS Systems is a cloud-based system which can be used anywhere with an internet connection.
  • To make safety simple – Carers can log into the system and know exactly what needs to be actioned by clicking one simple button, the ‘To-Do List’.
  • To make safety efficient – Online WHS Systems is an automated system. If something needs to be actioned, the relevant person is alerted via email or SMS.

“I like the fact that all our systems and compliance issues can be managed from the system, prompts and reminders are so important and having this information automated plays a very important role in meeting our compliance obligations.

We initially looked at the system for managing just our WHS obligations and soon found it could do so much more for our business.”

Ben Levesque, Chief Executive Officer, Finley Regional Care
