How to stay safe in a world obsessed with COVID-19

Date: 13/07/20

Safety is like a new-born baby. The moment you take your eye off it is the moment that something bad happens. At times when we’re all preoccupied with social distancing to prevent us from being infected with COVID-19 it’s essential that we don’t take our eyes off other aspects of health and safety.  The fallacy is that health and safety is now all about COVID-19. As most health and safety professionals will admit, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

That’s why Ardent’s multi-award-winning Site Manager technology is the perfect way for sites to be held accountable for safe operation of plant. Site Manager uses data to notify users of events that could potentially impact human life or cause machine damage. It removes the need for someone to keep nagging sites to do things or for frequent site inspections in the hope that something might be spotted. This behaviour often creates animosity and a sense that people are being micro-managed. No-one wants this.

Instead, Site Manager lets people get on with their jobs by allowing them to operate within certain parameters. And this frees up health and safety resources to focus on other equally important health and safety matters. Site Manager also includes a dashboard that allows health and safety professionals to get a holistic view of the operation that they can drill into to pinpoint areas for investigation. And Site Manager Analytics includes charts and trends at group, divisional and site level that enables users to track progress and improvements over time.

Site Manager is a valuable data-driven driven tool that is helping to take the guesswork out of health and safety by allowing professionals to be much more focused in their approach. And our view is that is this has got to be good for safety and reducing accidents on sites.
