Australian OH&S specialist Safety for Life reckons that its cloud-based safety management software Sherm offers users a real competitive advantage. And by adopting its SaaS (software as a service) approach, companies gain a comprehensive safety management program that is always available and always up to date.

According to Safety for Life Director Caroline Kingston, this approach also minimises the risk for potential users: “With Sherm there is no large initial capital outlay or unnecessary ongoing resource requirements for deployment, operations and upgrades,” she says, adding “Cloud computing optimises the use of computing resources to deliver the ultimate in efficiency and utilisation of the entire shared infrastructure.”

Sherm is a integrated management system that is accessible online 24/7 from desktop and mobile platforms. With no server to deploy and no software licences to purchase, Sherm can be configured quickly and easily and this is all done by Safety for Life for the client. Sherm is a scalable system that can be used to manage both single and multiple sites.

The software modules are each designed to streamline crucial aspects of the safety management process, such as data and records management, reporting and recording of incidents and hazards, tracking corrective actions, scheduling training, performing workplace inspections and comprehensive reporting.

All aspects of the management system have been constructed to be easily configurable for each company, from the risk matrix down to the security settings, so the software is suitable for all industry types from mining to manufacturing.

The homepage provides the logged in user a graphical display of all the hazards, incidents, issues and workplace inspections that have been logged for the 12 months. The information can also be viewed by site. Each user’s Dashboard messages provide a listing of all tasks that need to be performed. Each message will link to the specific page in Sherm for ease of use.

Sherm is a fully secured technology hosted on dedicated private servers, which are backed up every day and supported by a 99.9% network uptime service level agreement. And, all system updates, upgrades and improvements are provided free of charge, and performed invisibly, with no need for user input.

Comprehensive support is included in the SaaS model, with extensive online help facilities and training courses. There is even access to a virtual OH&S consultant to help users resolve individual questions.

Sherm is designed to enable compliance with existing Australian standards on OH&S management (AS4801), quality management (ISO9001), environmental management systems (ISO14001), risk management (ISO31000), and workplace injury and disease reporting (AS1885.1).
