According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, between the 2021-2022 financial year around 497,300 people (3.5%) reported a work-related injury or illness, with 24% of the most common injuries relating to bending, lifting, pushing or pulling. 31% of these injured workers received compensation from their employer or government services.

With so much at risk to both employees and employers, OH&S standards continue to rise around the world, prompting a boom in risk management industries and more stringent safety management on high-risk professions such as:

  • Rope access technicians
  • Arborists
  • Height safety specialists
  • Drone operators
  • Roofing trades
  • Height maintenance technicians
  • Riggers
  • Crane-operators
  • Confined space professionals
  • Diving specialists
  • Solar and wind farm industries
  • and more

As the standards and mandated protocols change, it gets more complicated for high-risk business owners to navigate their obligations and safety infrastructure.

JGID is a business management software system that provides front-to-back running of all your operations and helps structure and streamline efficient, reliable and consistent safety risk assessments and management. Read on to discover more.

1. Equipment management software

Many high-risk industries rely on safety equipment as their main operations apparatus. Effective and consistent equipment safety audits are essential to maintaining assets and ensuring all safety measures are taken during equipment assessment, maintenance, and repair.

Examples of such safety equipment include, but are not limited to:

  • Abseiling gear for rope access technicians and height safety specialists
  • Drone maintenance and safety checks
  • Chains and ropes
  • Safety equipment
  • Diving equipment
  • Fire safety equipment and utilities
  • Emergency notification utilities
  • Security technology
  • and much more

High-risk businesses experience their share of lost profits through lost, missing or stolen assets. JGID can help significantly reduce instances of inventory shrinkage with our app-based IR scan in and out features, as well as the ability for GPS tracking of your assets.

All asset information is updated in real-time with information being shared across the platform, including clocked asset use hours. This can help you remain on top of equipment due for scheduled safety assessment and maintenance, as well as due diligence on monitoring hazards.

2. Staff management

90% of workplace accidents are due to human error, so your staff’s level of ongoing training as OH&S parameters change in your industry is one of the best ways you can ensure your team is on top of their safety operations and procedures.

JGIDs staff management features mean you can keep track of safety compliance training modules and attendance reliably with all staff data kept in one encrypted, easy-to-access and navigate digital portfolio, which also includes pay information, personal medical data, certificates and clearances, and any other information relevant to your workforce.

3. Safety communications

The most helpful data you can collect to improve safety in your industry is safety reports after incidents and asset faults occur. While it is mandatory to file incident reports when job accidents happen, this data won’t help if it can’t be easily accessed and referenced when adjusting reviewed safety precautions.

JGID keeps all your safety data on file, with advanced search engines to help you isolate critical safety information from your saved audits and reports.

4. Automated risk assessment

No matter how many safety protocols you implement, human error will always be your biggest risk. It is easy to forget the small but critical things that need to be done when a safety risk assessment is being performed. 

JGID helps to negate these problems with its advanced customisation and customer support network. It allows for automated safety and equipment checks to be notified to all authorised staff, with reminders if these tasks are not signed off.

You also can create prompted safety assessment protocols for remote devices so human error can be negated as much as possible when assessments are being conducted

5. Schedules and resource allocation

Some high-risk businesses, such as crane operators, forklift suppliers, and earthmover providers, require mobile service utilities to perform safety assessments, maintenance, and repairs. Effective resource scheduling and allocation are critical to ensuring fast, effective, and thorough safety protocols and emergency services. 

JGID job management software helps to optimise these processes through a scheduling system that notifies staff in real-time when scheduling has been altered, while GPS tracking of your utilities helps you maintain a vigil where your service and assessment teams and utilities are allocated.
