User testing is well underway on the new-look Safety Management Intelligence System (SMIS).
Reporting the details of incidents is easier thanks to ‘Smart Forms’, which allow the user more flexibility over the way fields appear, depending on the amount of information that needs to be entered.
They work in a very similar way to other forms across the internet, meaning the process for capturing all the relevant details from an incident should be more straightforward for safety teams, and so help contribute to shared, rich business intelligence.
An on-line demo of how the Smart Forms work has been made available by RSSB on their website. Produced by Ideagen, the demo walks through how the forms work, and provides another sneak preview of the Enlighten safety and risk management software being leveraged by RSSB for the new system.
Virtually all RSSB member companies are now signed up to participate in testing and training, with the new Safety Management Intelligence System on schedule to go live on 5 December as planned.
The new system is being brought in as part of the SMIS+ programme to deliver next generation safety reporting technology. In 2017, its longer term potential will be realised, seeing safety teams able to report and track incidents and close calls via mobile devices, upload images, and use GPS-tagging, as well as being able to export data in more user-friendly ways.
