ISO 45001

Qualsys’s software is used to help businesses formalise, manage and properly document all processes for a best practice health and safety management system.

Best practice software and services for your health and safety management system

Support in complying with the occupational health and safety standard

Use workflows to identify, assess and prioritise risks

ISO 45001 is all about risk-based thinking. You might use a risk register to identify, assess and prioritise health and safety risks. Workflow functionality in our software means you can assign responsibilities and set deadlines to ensure risks are dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Analyse your effectiveness at handling risks

You'll need to constantly check the effectiveness of your actions to address risk, and this means having the right data to make informed decisions. Our KPI dashboard functionality gives you instant access to real-time information that you can use to track performance and make better judgements.

Create a culture of continuous improvement

ISO 45001 requires you to establish how your management system fosters a culture of continuous improvement. Use our software to resolve issues so they never recur, and to regularly audit against health and safety policies and requirements.

A clear process for recording risks and hazards

Recording accidents by hand in a logbook no longer does the job. You’re putting your staff, reputation and business at risk because there's nothing in place to prevent the accident happening again. Our software sets out a clear process for recording potential risks and hazards as they occur, giving you a clear and instant overview of all areas of risk.

Improve health and safety reporting

Instant reporting dashboards help address areas of risk - allowing the correct action to be taken at the correct time.

Communicate and comply

Tie your health and safety documentation together in a single repository for easy business-wide access. Check who has read what and when.
