Organizations implement observation programs to increase the safety of the workers. Many times this leads to having goals related to the number of observations executed. This leads to catch up towards the end of the reporting period as the employee/contractor wants to remain in compliance with the company’s objectives.
There is a great desire to look for trends in the observation data to identify systemic issues that need to be addressed. Having a centralized observation repository gives companies this opportunity. Unfortunately most facilities rely on static paper forms to collect the information in the field. Capturing the information on paper creates a disconnect with other processes such as work permitting, incident/near miss trends, contractor management, etc.
The Knomatic Observation Solution bridges these gaps to encourage the organizational changes to improve performance.
