eCompliance has unveiled its new hazard assessment module; an advanced, free hazard assessment tool to help companies reduce hazardous risks and protect employees. This cloud-based technology is an intuitive and accessible database service that identifies, tracks and communicates workplace hazards across all job levels and job sites. Nearly 80 per cent of companies are still using paper processes to measure their safety programs, making it very difficult to facilitate and measure worker participation, said eCompliance. Furthermore, formal and on-site hazard assessments, though necessary, are not being done as they are too time consuming. eCompliance’s hazard assessment software is closing these alarming technological and safety gaps in high-risk industries. the company said. Prior to the official launch, the University of Alberta, which played a pivotal role in initiating the development of the hazard assessment software, along with other universities and colleges tested the tool to ensure it would be effective. The university said the tool helped structure a stronger hazard assessment process and improved communication across the organization.
