Training and inductions for the entire workforce needed an approach to suit both contractors and employees and with operations spread across multiple sites, the challenge was to ensure quality of training as well as consistency. With incident reporting, executive management required a solution that would ensure incidents were reported, investigated and managed appropriately all whilst allowing senior management full visibility of data across the organisation.
“The Rapid Global reporting within the Rapid Incident and Rapid Induct Systems is used during Senior Management Review meetings to assist the executive team to identify, assess, evaluate and set goals to achieve on-going improvement and promote a positive safety culture.”
