Anna Golebiewska: “It couldn’t be easier.”

Brisbane-based Vital Chemical has switched from a paper-based HSEQ management system to cloud based software that has enabled it to realise a number of business operational improvements - including recertification to the latest Quality and Safety standards in less than six weeks.

Australian owned and operated since 1977, Vital Chemical specialises in formulating novel solutions for industrial problems. The company has made a success out of producing environmentally sound chemical alternatives that combine efficacy and cost effectiveness with safety for the end user.

Following recent and ongoing growth of the business, the company’s directors recognised the need for an efficient business management system. The system would need to be simple to use, easy to access for all employees and would support the company’s ISO9001 quality system and the latest ISO45001 OHS management systems compliance requirements.

Anna Golebiewska is HSEQ Manager at Vital Chemical. She says: “Sherm’s ease of accessibility to internal audit results, maintenance and inspection records, chemical and contractor registers all resulted in our company obtaining excellent audit results of nil nonconformances for our last quality audit!”

“Safety for Life provided our company with excellent service and quick responses rates to any questions or issues raised by staff during our business’ software introduction. The ongoing support provided by Safety for Life has been has been of great assistance to our business through this implementation period.”

“Sherm implementation to our business was very easy and intuitive,” added Golebiewska. Within a short timeframe, the Vital Chemical employees were able to use the Sherm software confidently. And it wasn’t long before they were praising the ease and simplicity of the program.

Overall, the two main benefits that Vital Chemical realised were the ability to apply consistent methods of hazard and incident reporting across the business and the time saved on filing and the retrieval of records.

“Sherm is an incredibly flexible software program,” says Anna Golebiewska. “Any records or data concerning health and safety, quality and environment can be easily captured in Sherm, keeping all of our documentation current and accessible. It couldn’t be easier.”
