How PG&E Improved Compliance and Job-Site Safety by Replacing Paper with Smart Mobile Forms


1/30/18 12:00 pm to 1/30/18 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Safety standards differ slightly between organizations and industries, but the goals of safety professionals are ultimately the same: reducing the number of injuries, incidents and environmental spills that occur on-site. As pressures rise to do more with less, efficient health and safety protocols become increasingly important.

EHS reporting needs to do more than prove compliance. It must ensure machines are up and running full-time, keep employee training up to date, and help avoid the pitfalls of having to recruit and train part-time replacements if employees are injured on the job.

In this webinar, we’ll speak with PG&E to discover how data collection on iPhones and iPads in the field, combined with a cloud-based back office and KPI dashboards, transformed their EHS program into an all-around business support system.

Join us on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 12:00 CT/1:00pm ET, as we speak with Darby Brennan, chief (director-level), IT program manager at PG&E to explore how health and safety data collection on iOS devices helped their team produce a safer, more compliant workplace.

Topics will include:

  • The perks of collecting data on a mobile device over paper
  • How sharing information digitally improves EHS compliance, workplace safety and team efficiency
  • The importance of accessible short- and long-term EHS reporting
  • Back-office impacts of mobile solutions in the field
  • Steps involved in taking your business from paper forms to digital forms
  • Real-life impacts of mobile data collection and cloud integration
  • Where PG&E found the most return of time and money in the field
