Workplace Safety Software Management Systems for Mining, Oil and Gas and Other Industries, that Predict and Prevent Workplace Injuries

Research on four years of workplace data has proven that trending safety inspections can improve loss categories by predicting, and then preventing, workplace injuries. Predictive models used in SafetyNet, Predictive Solutions’ safety software system, have been proven in the field with accuracy rates ranging from 80-97%. Case studies of actual results have shown that if injuries can be accurately predicted, they can be prevented.

High-risk jobsites in the manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, and many other fields have often realized all the value they can from traditional workplace safety programs like incident and near-miss analysis, process safety, and even behavior-based safety programs. Many of the companies in these industries have relatively low incident rates, but have hit a plateau in getting to a zero incident level. They require a new paradigm within which to manage safety. Many of these same companies are turning to advanced and predictive analytics in safety software management systems to help them break through this plateau.

While most companies have already invested in safety software systems that are focused on automation and efficiency, these systems are not able to help companies ask the tougher business questions like “where and when will my next incident occur?” This can only be done by using advanced and predictive analytics on a company’s safety data.

SafetyNet helps customer collect and analyze workplace safety data, and then makes predictions as to which locations, teams, shifts, or even work tasks are most at risk of increased injuries. Armed with this predictive capability, companies are able to take proactive steps to prevent injuries before they occur. In order to collect the data to fuel the advanced and predictive analytics in the safety software management system, SafetyNet can support multiple inspection checklists to cover various categories and methodologies, from comprehensive conditions and compliance-based checklists, to people or behavior-based checklists, even safety management system (SMS) audits.   SafetyNet has been used in the following industries:

  • Oil and gas (including the natural gas or “fracking” industry) exploration, construction, and maintenance
  • Manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Aerospace
  • Construction and Contractor Management
  • Utilities and Energy
  • Universities
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • High Tech
  • Automotive
  • Chemicals
