Going Beyond OSHA Compliance
Watch how ASUS uses Safety Reports by ToolWatch to improve employee safety.
ASUS is a utility company whose 300 employees help military installations across eight states rebuild and maintain their water and wastewater infrastructure. The company always valued safety, but after a trench collapse in 2018 nearly seriously injured an employee, they began to ask themselves what more they could do to ensure their safety beyond dispatching safety teams for the occasional inspection. That’s when ASUS’ Employee Health and Safety Manager, Travis Adams, researched and discovered Safety Reports.
Today, ASUS uses several of Safety Reports' safety products to implement an innovative safety program that has taken them well past OSHA compliance. Safety Reports empowered their company to:
- Establish two-way communication between management and employees to respond in real-time to new issues and incidents, such as the COVID-19 pandemic
- Build customized pre- and post-inspection checklists that ensure worksites stay safe 24/7 for employees and military personnel
- Set up automated reporting and trend analysis that proactively identifies and communicates corrective actions for their field teams to take
- Establish a culture of safety—not a document on a shelf, but a living, breathing thing—integrated among their employees
Now, ASUS doesn’t sweat an OSHA inspection because they know that when the inspectors arrive, they can take the lead in showing everything they are doing to promote a safety culture. With over 10,000 inspections and 260,000 observations in the Safety Reports solution every year, the ASUS team prides itself on full transparency.
