Pros

When Hazards are spotted/identified and logged I find its very easy to close out/ track the said hazards.

Cons

The drop-down box (housekeeping, hot works)and the like could do with more options, this would cover more site topics /hazards

Everything in one place makes tracking training and audit requirements so much simpler than numerous spreadsheets.

Pros

Easy to access from any PC makes this a useful tool both in the office and out and about in the field. Its easy to add staff members and allocate their requirements right from the start and manage requirements going forward where changes may be required. The ability to set up reports for individuals or groups across different training requirements is very useful. Easy to see records and track requirements for training and audits.

Cons

Inability, without creating a template, to schedule/record multiple training courses for a group. Having to add group members to potentially 10 different courses is very time consuming.

Whole company view of H&S and Training compliance, supporting the development of an improved safety culture and engagement

Pros

Quick view of training compliance, using RAG buttons - very clear. Simple hazard reporting, now also with smartphone apps

Cons

Inflexible reporting. The default menu of options is too limited and it isn't easy to create regular reports to match our needs

It streamlined the reporting system keeping everything in one place.

Pros

Very intuitive piece of software easy to navigate. Support system prompt with help and advice. Regular reviews given on usage. Updates sent out of upgrades regularly. Webinars available as well as conference calls to sort out issues and have telephone training.

Cons

The email notifications are a bit messy and hard to navigate for occasional users, but I know this is being looked into.

Effective Software has changed the way in which I carry out my Role as Health and Safety Manager.
Incident Reports give me live data enabling me and my team to investigate and action incidents basically as they happen.

I manage my H&S Documentation over the whole country with ease. Update a document set live and all staff have access. Review dates raised to me by notification so I don't miss anything. Great for quality control.

Quality and detail of risk assessment has improved with standardisation across the organisation done in one easy step.

I could go on about the improvements made with all the area within the system but just to say Effective Software has changed my organisation way at Managing Safety.

There has been issues along the way but the Effective Team have been there to help us through each issue. Their team actually listen and try to improve the system to the clients needs.
Lastly I looked at a lot of H&S Management systems on the market before going with Effective the main reason being user friendliness, system coverage for managing safety and yes cost came into it as well.
