A new year has arrived and it’s time to set your organization up for success! There’s no better time than now to think about what you want to accomplish this year. Questions we should all be asking ourselves as this year starts are: Am I ready for what 2021 may deliver? How am I planning to deliver safety success in 2021? And how can I ensure we keep our on-site employees safe?
Our team of safety experts want to help you with all of these questions. Get ready to transform your safety program by doing the following and more in 2021…
1. Efficiently Manage All COVID-19 Related Risks
If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s that we must be prepared to protect our team members through an efficient safety program to properly manage the impact of COVID-19.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still affecting safety professionals in organizations across the world, and many have found keeping all employees safe a challenge. We have discussed this topic with many safety leaders across North America and one thing remains consistent: a secure work environment for team members with a system allowing for real-time data and complete insight into all potential risks, is key to success.
Several organizations have utilized daily COVID-19 assessment forms to stay on top of the health of all employees on-site. However, many have found this wasn’t enough as workers were reluctant to share their symptoms or fill out questionnaires honestly, as this would result in having to take time off or lose pay. Workers could not afford this as they had families to care for and responsibilities to fulfill.
An EcoOnline eCompliance customer since 2018, Avenge Energy Services, empowered their front-line workforce with our easy-to-use digital EHS solution and ClearMe™, an on-demand COVID-19 diagnostic testing platform offering rapid testing solutions. By using our EHS solution to collect data in real-time, in regards to employee COVID-19 related systems on an hourly basis, and giving workers the option to get rapid testing, employees were more likely to be honest when filling out the daily assessment forms.
By staying on top of all possible risks, Avenge Energy Services was able to mitigate COVID-19 related hazards quickly and efficiently, remaining proactive at all times.

2. Streamline Everyday Processes
Another key element for a successful 2021 is to streamline time-consuming manual processes. With the high volume of day-to-day operations, safety professionals tend to get lost in administrative tasks and may find it difficult to manage their safety programs. This year, it’s time to push aside the stacks of papers and folders on your desk and switch to…a digital EHS solution.
A digital EHS solution will allow you to digitize all documents in your safety program and centralize them in a single platform. With everything accessible with a click of a button, you can find documents in record time! Forget spending time sifting through boxes or binders to find the exact form you’re looking for. Your entire safety program is in the palm of your hands with a digital EHS solution.
We sat down with our Director of Product, Harish Pandian, about his thoughts on how technology can positively influence your workforce going into 2021. “It’s about providing an easy-to-use digital EHS solution for your front-line workforce to simplify safety and drive better results. Expanding on this thought, we need to take a moment and listen to the needs of our front-line workers. What are they telling us? How can we simplify processes for them? What training do they require? It’s all possible if you proactively work towards streamlining your safety program with a digital solution.”
By streamlining everyday processes, you can have more time available to take care of key priorities. Plus, with complete insight into all things safety, you’ll also be able to take a deep dive into your safety program and analyze all facets. This will make identify gaps in your safety program simple and help you strengthen your processes and stay proactive.
