- Purchase only modular safety management software. If it is modular then you can purchase the things you want and leave the things you already have. If it is not modular you may be wasting money or forcing your company to use only one software solution.
- Ensure the software is web based. This means there is no software installations on PC’s and the software is more likely to be easier to use.
- The software should provide both reactive and proactive safety approaches. Proactive modules prevent incidents. Reactive modules work to stop incidents from occurring again.
- Make sure it is easy to use. Request a trial or a demonstration. Make sure it does what you need it to do.
- Flexible reporting. It should have standard reports to produce LTIFR statistics as well as user definable reports. It should also have reporting to ensure operational tasks are being completed.
- Who uses and recommends the software? Ask for references from companies that are either similar in nature or size to your company. Ring them up and ask questions.
- Do any major safety organisations promote and recommend the software?
- Is it scalable? Can it grow as you do?
- Can it be customised easily and at low cost? The larger your organisation, the more important this is. Smaller companies can often work with off the shelf software.
- Get buy in from all stakeholders. If you force software on people they may not use it. If they are involved in the decision making process they are more likely to help make the implementation successful.
