Safety Observations - Case Study
PALFINGER did not have a platform to track issues or analyze safety data. They were unable to implement evidence-based measures and prevent issues from repeating.
Safety Indicator’s Safety Observations Module streamlined their hazard reporting process, allowing users to capture hazards in the field and track the progress of remediation.

Whether you’re seeking guidance on meeting compliance, or looking to improve your organization’s safety with more effective processes, this guide offers valuable insights and practical tips to navigate the complexities of hazard management with safety observations.
Safety directors can see all open Observations in one comprehensive List View, including a description, date, and location, as well as an assignee and due date for any needed corrective actions. Lists can be filtered, grouped or searched to find a specific Observation or sublet of items.
A Details Form is brought up simply by clicking on any Observation in the list. Only those with the proper Permissions may be allowed to view or edit information in this safety observations software module.
Whether the Observation concerns a company employee or a contractor employee, progress can be continually documented and tracked within the platform. The status of each item is color coded, so Unsafe observations that still need attention stand out ‘at a glance’ from those that are marked Safe or Resolved.
Like many aspects of Safety Indicators, the Safety Observations Module can be configured to fit your company, workflow and industry.
When supervisors and employees see that the safety breaches they report always get rectified, they know that the company cares about them and the safety of their workplace.
The Observations Module can also be used for positive reinforcement. A worker following safe procedures or making improvements can receive ‘Good Job!’ recognition. Someone recently reporting a safety hazard can be commended with a ‘Good Catch!’
A variety of data charts and graphs offer the EHS team a birds-eye view of workplace-based and behavior-based safety observations, either recent or over the long term.
These color-coded InSite graphics can break down Observations by type, by worksite, by status, and more. Positive or negative trends, as well as similar Observations in multiple departments, become instantly visible. This safety observations software provides an essential suite of leading indicators for companies committed to continuous improvement.
