Improving Communication and Preventing Catastrophes With Digital Logs
If you knew that you could potentially prevent a catastrophe with a simple tool would you try it?
We all know that communication is one of the most vital parts to safety within any organization. Yet in so many cases we find that it is one of our weakest links. I was reading about an incident that occurred recently and I couldn’t help but wonder if it could have been avoided with better communication within the team. I have been working with various teams for nearly three decades and have experienced the consequences of poor communication.
There are tools available that can greatly improve communication and reduce potential hazards. A digital logging platform is a proven solution that is easy to implement and easy to use.
But having this tool is not enough without a well thought out plan. Here are a few things to consider when setting up and implementing your logging system
5 Things To Consider
1. Standard Operating Practices should be followed:
Creating standardized forms with required fields and alerts and notifications helps to keep everyone on the same page and situationally aware.
2. Adherence should be clear due to good evidence in the operation record:
Clear reporting helps to make sense of the data and observations collected to ensure better decisions are made.
3. Pictures are worth 1000 words:
The ability to utilize mobile devices and snap pictures of abnormal occurrences and include them in inspections provides clear imagery for the team to clearly understand where efforts need to be made.
4. Location evidence is key to verifying operators are out and about when and where they should be:
Accountability is critical in any team environment. Knowing that team members are where they should be doing what they should be doing keeps everyone more safe and efficient.
