Adopting Health & Safety software within the Housing sector
Housing Associations in the UK and Ireland provides over two and a half million homes for more than five million people. The housing sector in the UK and Ireland is not a sector to have a poorly managed health and safety system in place. We have found in our experience with our housing customers that the housing sector tends to need a highly flexible health and safety system in place.
Effective Software is currently working with many housing associations of all sizes to improve their overall health and safety procedures. Our customers are benefiting from using our safety software through the creation of a zero harm safety culture, allowing greater access to safety data across an organisation, save administration time on low-value activities and reduced management costs including administration costs, lost time spent, insurance premiums and solicitor’s fees.
Genesis Housing, one of the UK's leading housing associations - caring for over 100,000 residents in over 33,000 homes across London and the East of England came to Effective Software for a solution to their health and safety needs. Belinda Tompkins, Head of SHE for the Genesis Housing, was tasked with integrating their Health & Safety practices across the transforming organisation and ensuring their future success.
Since implementing the health and safety management software, Belinda has expressed how all her health and safety needs have been met using our software. Belinda highlighted the following key benefits from implementing our software:
- Highly flexible software that continues to allow her to customise to suit their organisation;
- Ability to track valuable SHE information efficiently, while improving the data shared within the company.
- Improvement in the ease and quality of Health & Safety information, while reducing administration time;
- User configuration to accommodate changes within the organisation;
- High level of integration of the systems, allowing for better data capture;
- Allowing the team to be more pro-active, which leads to reducing risk.
"The staff really like the system, as it is easy and simple to use and are looking forward to improvements in reporting and trend analysis as this information develops."
