How to reduce work accidents with digital


Key goal – reduce work safety risks

Work accidents can create substantial impact on a day-to-day business activity as well as a costly dent in a budget. Stats speak for themselves:

  • Every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease
  • Every 15 seconds, 153 workers have a work-related accident
  • Every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths per year
  • 317 million accidents occur on the job annually
  • 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year

But how can you reduce human and budgetary costs?

Easy access to security advice and procedures

Health and Safety  (H&S) rules and procedures are a well known topic for those in charge of factories, non office and remote worker’s security. They all struggle with a challenge of how to keep these often evolving crucial documents up to date.

The era of one communication platform is truly over. In today’s environment there are multiple work devices available (smartphones, tablets and desktops) and, with the power of internet, it’s easier than ever to communicate. But can poor internet connection stop the workers based outside of the offices from receiving the advice they need? And this is only of the the multiple barriers preventing the staff from benefitting from the crucial nuggets of H&S info.

Prevention via mobile 

Nowadays digital business content can be gathered and published without any internet connection – simply offline. Companies are able to develop their bespoke mobile applications using their own branding and then offer them via mobiles, tablets and desktop to their always-on-the-go employees. This allows the staff to browse the security procedures even when off internet.

Key advantages: up to date and interactive

Accessibility of safety procedures and regulations is one of the benefits. The safety application allows businesses not only update but also inform about the latest new content by a straightforward and free of charge push notification. This way with only one click the employees immediately see and access all what’s new.  And what’s even better it’s possible to gamify the discovery of H&R rules via a variety of quiz options.

Mobile apps therefore bring: accessibility, accuracy and ease of discovery.  Aquafadas partners with companies on their journey to workplace safety. With our tools it is possible to create: ready-to-use, innovative, personalised and accessible everywhere mobile tools.
