Online WHS in the Health Care Industry

Online WHS is used throughout many Australian Health Care Facilities.

Let’s explore what Health Care Groups get out of Online WHS and the benefits to the industry.

Safety in the Health Care Industry

Typically the Health Care Industry has carers working with multiple patients, doing so can be quite daunting as well as making sure to provide a safe place of work, not only for the worker but also their patients. With a myriad of paperwork to be undertaken, Online WHS makes the carers experience so much easier. One of the other aspects of the Healthcare Industry is incident management, recording the incident correctly and maintaining records of not only the incident but all parties involved. Online WHS has a comprehensive incident report module making it easier for the carer to report the incident and develops comprehensive reports for management and boards.

 

What Online WHS 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 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 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.”
