Challenges & Solutions
Managing Health and Safety across many locations
With 70 locations throughout the UK and Ireland, gathering safety data was a key issue with DX Group. With the Effective Software system, they can now easily access all health and safety data through the software and across all of their locations.
Keeping track of all Health and Safety data manually
Sites are now able to track training compliance with real-time information. In only a few clicks, the team can see who is trained and who is not.
Improving the workplace safety culture
Getting employees onboard and engaged with health and safety was another issue that had to be overcome. With Effective Software’s functionality and accessibility, now all employees can participate through risk assessments and reporting hazards
The efficiency of this smart system has allowed Auditors to reduce time inspecting and spend a greater amount of time educating and progressing with the onward safety journey

Improving the ease of access and quality of Health & Safety information
The key focus for Tony Thompson, Regional Safety, Health & Environment Advisor at DX Grou, was to improve the ease and quality of Health & Safety information, while reducing complexity and data duplication. Before the implementation of the software, if an accident occurred and an investigation was put in place, the likes of training records and risk assessments took a lot of time and effort to pull together.
Now, at the drop of a hat, the ability is in place to get the likes of training completely up to standard. The training module and the clear ability to prove duty of care that comes with it is something Tony is already seeing large value in.
One of the biggest benefits Tony identified was in Effective Software’s functionality and accessibility. The ease of use and ability to access all health and safety data in through the software and across all of their locations were some of Tony’s main objectives when taking on the project.
