Checks & Tests
There are hundreds of thousands of workplace safety failings across the United Kingdom every year, with many of them resulting in serious injuries and fatalities. In order to reduce dangers and make the workplace a safer environment, legislation concerning health and safety is very strict.
Breaching these laws carries the threat of a heavy fine, prosecution — or both.
Smartlog® is health and safety software to assist employers in effectively managing and enforcing all compliance requirements for their organisation.

Health and safety software – also known as OHS (Occupational Health & Safety) software, is an online portal or platform designed to assist employers in their management of health and safety compliance in the workplace.
Health and safety software systems vary in the amount of management assistance that they provide, ranging from some being a simple logbook platform to others functioning as a real-time safety monitoring system, integrated with other business management software.
For health and safety personnel, OHS software replaces a number of manual processes and also provides a digital assistant, training platform and communications network. However, for smaller businesses that normally cannot afford to employ full-time health and safety personnel, OHS software allows any competent person to look after the organisation’s health and safety.
Your health and safety software needs are largely dependent on your work environment, as well as the types of activities which frequently take place within your workplace. Good health and safety software should address your specific areas of concern, improve your workflow, and provide transparency.
In an office setting for example, training is important but your safety system should still prioritise risk assessment because there are still many safety hazards present, even though they might not appear obvious. In a more physical work environment, your health & safety software system will require additional functions for tracking and reporting hazards in real-time, because the risks are much higher and impactful.
From onboarding, a health and safety software system will save countless admin hours by immediately replacing traditionally written and filed processes. Whilst every paper-based work system involves individual stages of completion such as drafting, communicating and filing, a digital system already has these stages integrated.
More commonly, some organisations use multiple software systems for different processes – from standalone risk assessment software and accident reporting systems to HR software for managing personnel. This creates a complicated network of multiple systems with a large margin for blindspots, general miscommunication and, predictably, reduced safety.
Smartlog integrates different compliance processes within a single system, providing the accessibility and security that using multiple software platforms or a paper-based system simply cannot provide.
