Smart EHSQ Powered by Business Intelligence

bi for ehsqThe puzzle pieces of raw data come together to become a transformative picture for business when advanced analytics are applied.

History shows advanced analytical capabilities used in business are a foundation for improved decision-making and performance. Data gathered through various activities and processes becomes insight and intelligence when analysis workflows and methodologies are applied. And the more analysis scrubbing of data, the greater the potential for yielding knowledge and actionable awareness to accelerate improvement.

An exceptional analyst or analytics team can be a starting point for analytics. Going above and beyond in getting the most intelligence out of data collected requires something much deeper, through the scale of many people and analytical processes. An organization should be considering how to foster a data-centered culture of share and share alike in order to extract as much intelligence as it can from data gathered.

OSHA’s New Rule a Recordkeeping Mountain for Employers to Climb

An already vast ocean of incident and illness electronic recordkeeping for American business has become a whole lot deeper and wider, as a result of OSHA’s “new rule” that came into effect this year.

In 2017, more organizations must gather more data and provide more reporting of accident and illness incidents to the U.S. Department of Labor agency.  The so-called “new rule” from OSHA will turn a molehill into a mountain as the number of those employers who will be expected to report this data is set to quadruple. Currently about 35,000 large employers submit data annually to OSHA and that number is expected to jump to 130,000. Approximately 150,000 smaller employers who currently submit summary data now includes 500,000 organizations.

  • The auditing of injury and illness recordkeeping forms.
  • Providing training on new

All this time, Intelex had grown into a formidable SaaS company right in the heart of Toronto and I missed it. But once I was introduced … Read more...
