HS&W Case Study 1: Lesson learned

JANUARY 2014

One of Shepherd’s customers causes an ozone leak at a water utility in England. That customer had to develop far more rigorous HS&W controls in response to the incident or lose its contract.

February 2014

That firm hires Stallard Kane to insure and help manage its H&S (a paper and binder based solution)but finds no comprehensive, automated H&S management solutions for small and medium business.

MAY 2014

Shepherd begins development of it’s HS&W module.

AUGUST 2014

Shepherd releases the first version of its H&S cloud-based management system.

TODAY 

Design and development continues but the application is mature and has managed thousands of services.

HS&W Case Study 2: Results

COMPLIANCE

99%+ completion of daily HS&W personal site assessments and debriefs.

LIABILITY

Technicians have refused to perform services for which they have not received electronic HS&W authorization – they fear going off the reservation. GOOD!

QUALITY

Daily review of RAMS & RAMS change management makes for safer completer RAMS.

CONTROL

Technicians do not deviate from the script. They perform only scheduled services for which they have signed that they understand all H&S risks. This also means no missed billing.

ACCESS

Technical staff have access at all times to the same current versions of RAMS, WA’s, etc.

COST

The system liberated existing staff from tedious and laborious paper-based management systems that were never that dependable in the first place.

HS&W Case Study 3: More Results

ON-DEMAND

Shepherd’s customer cannot conduct H&S assessments and clear staff to work in the absence of an HS&W manager and at anytime of the day or night.

DISCIPLINE

HS&W now permeates the organization and bookmarks the day.

CONFIDENCE

Customers appreciate the security in Shepherd’s customer’s services that Shepherd’s HS&W system provides.
