Health & safety compliance management system

4.7/5 (20 reviews)

Effective Software Overview

Effective Software is a cloud-based environment, health & safety (EHS) management software which includes modules covering risk management, incident reporting, audit management, CoSHH (control of substances hazardous to health), PPE (personal protective equipment) compliance, DSE (display screen equipment) assessments, training management, chemical inventory, plant and asset certification, contractor management, and more. The system can be used across a range of sectors, including manufacturing, oil and gas, logistics, construction, pharmaceuticals, public services, and more.

Effective Software’s risk management module enables users to create, manage, and share data, tasks, and reports related to risk assessments. Risk assessment templates and shared assessments can be created and distributed to the workforce, allowing employees to create and submit risk assessments for approval. Images and other attachments can be added for visual risk assessments. Actions can be assigned to employees and tracked to ensure completion. Users can also configure their own risk rating score calculations for use in reports.

The incident management module in Effective Software includes an inbuilt online report book to allow staff to report incidents wherever they are. Multiple different incident types can be recorded and managed, including injuries, near misses, safety observations, security events, road traffic accidents, environmental incidents, and more. Relevant staff members are automatically informed of recorded incidents by email, and investigation reports are generated from training, risk, and plant details.

Easy to use and everything in one place

Used Daily for 2+ years

Everything in one place makes tracking training and audit requirements so much simpler than numerous spreadsheets.

Pros

Easy to access from any PC makes this a useful tool both in the office and out and about in the field. Its easy to add staff members and allocate their requirements right from the start and manage requirements going forward where changes may be required. The ability to set up reports for individuals or groups across different training requirements is very useful. Easy to see records and track requirements for training and audits.

Cons

Inability, without creating a template, to schedule/record multiple training courses for a group. Having to add group members to potentially 10 different courses is very time consuming.

Effective Software Deployment

Improved awareness and involvement in risk assessment and hazard identification.

Pros

Modules allow you to cover common issues relating to management of Health and Safety.
Deployment on mobile means that the system is usable for mobile workers.

Cons

I would have expected a lot more interaction and automation between modules e.g. if an MSDS is updated the related COSHH Assessments could be flagged for review automatically.
If you build a work file similarly I would expect and automatic increment if some of the sub documents or records change.

Whole company view of H&S and Training compliance, supporting the development of an improved safety culture and engagement

Pros

Quick view of training compliance, using RAG buttons - very clear. Simple hazard reporting, now also with smartphone apps

Cons

Inflexible reporting. The default menu of options is too limited and it isn't easy to create regular reports to match our needs

For the modules in use we are quite happy, impersonating of further modules will take time, perhaps with the new interface this will be simpler

Pros

Auditing, hazard spotting and accident investigation process.

Cons

Clunky interface, modules desperate for revision and simplification.

Pros

All your documents in one secure place, easy for review

Cons

Uploading numorous documents for one individual could be better, it would be easier if you could select moduales to upload for one person instead of doing one at a time,
